   Butch Griffin Livestock Scholarship 
The Butch Griffin Scholarship was born to honor one of the Exchange Club of Albany’s most devoted members. Butch was a leader in the Vision, Mission, and, Motto of The Exchange. Butch took pride in mentoring each student that participated in the SW Georgia Regional Exchange Fair Livestock Show. Butch’s attitude was to teach competitors of the Livestock Show about Americanism, Youth, and Community Service. The tools taught by Butch helped each student make their community a better place to live.

The Exchange Club of Albany identifies the needs of our community and, in most cases, provide for those needs through projects falling under the Programs of Service. We are supported by our own officers, boards of directors, self-raised funds. No one in the Exchange Club of Albany collects a salary for his or her time or service. We do this to make our community a better place to live. We also develop valuable community partnerships with like-minded individuals and organizations working toward common goals.
