Primerica Leader Honored

York, AL, native and Primerica Regional Vice President, Liza Howard was honored by The University of West Alabama on Saturday, April 16. The University dedicated the Liza James Howard Courtyard in honor of Mrs. Howard being the first African American student to attend the University.

The courtyard showcased a monument to the 1969 and 1976 elementary education graduate. Personalized brick pavers were sold and surround the courtyard. The proceeds from bricks will benefit the University’s Liza J. Howard Scholarship Fund.

“This institution is pleased to honor Mrs. Howard for her many contributions to UWA and the people of Sumter County,” said UWA President Richard D. Holland.

Howard was inducted into UWA’s Society of the Golden Key in 2004, the highest honor given to a University graduate or faculty member. The National Alumni Association’s Liza J. Howard Alumni Chapter was also established in her name to honor her many accomplishments.

After teaching at Livingston Junior High School for 30 years, Mrs. Howard retired from teaching high school and joined Primerica as an independent representative. Today, she continues to her work as an educator by teaching Primerica’s clients about their finances and how to make their money work for them.
