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.
