Married couples who have celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary or more, and individuals who are 100 years old or older are also honored by the Alabama Senior Citizens Hall of Fame each year. 

“This is the one major event in Alabama each year where individuals are formally honored and recognized for their selfless work and dedication to serving citizens in their community,” said Department of Senior Services Commissioner Jean Brown. “It is truly an honor to recognize a group of seniors who have contributed so much to improving the lives of older Alabamians.”

The Alabama Senior Citizens Hall of Fame has honored and recognized Alabamians aged 60 or older for their outstanding contributions to the lives of older Alabamians in their local communities since 1983. 

ADSS is a cabinet-level state agency that administers programs for senior citizens, people with disabilities, and caregivers. Gov. Kay Ivey appointed Brown to serve as the Commissioner of the Department of Senior Services in 2019.
