Clayton and Maggie-Scott Cogle named “Good Neighbor of the Year”
Clayton and Maggie-Scott Cogle have been named “Good Neighbor of the Year” by Pine Belt Communications.
In honor of its 60th Anniversary, Pine Belt Communications established the “Good Neighbor of the Year” award. Pine Belt has been recognizing a “Good Neighbor of the Week” each week for the past year. Nominations, made by employees, customers, and friends, are for residents in Pine Belt’s six-county service area to recognize their service to the community.
Those recognized as a “Good Neighbor of the Week” during the year were submitted to the community for a vote to determine the “Good Neighbor of the Year”. The five top were finalists and a public vote determined the eventual winner. To honor the winner Pine Belt is donating $1000 to the charity of the honoree’s choice.
Clayton and Maggie are both teachers at Martin Middle School. Clayton teaches 8th-grade History and helps coach the football team. He has helped lead the team to several undefeated seasons. He is also a member of the Blackbelt Benefit Group. Clayton is passionate about Selma's rich history and inspires young people to improve our city’s future. Maggie-Scott teaches 7th-grade math. She loves Selma and supports all community events. She is always extremely positive. Their marriage and family life that is based on love and respect is an excellent example to their students and all who know them.
The charity chosen by the Cogles is the Bloom House which is an adoption and foster care ministry serving central Alabama.
“Our company’s motto is “Neighbors You Can Call On” and our weekly recognition of the Good Neighbor of the Week and this annual recognition of the Good Neighbor of the Year is a way for us to recognize citizens who exemplify and embody the character and actions of a good neighbor,” stated John Nettles, President of Pine Belt Communications. “And it allows us to honor the recipient by making a donation to a worthy charity of the recipient’s choosing.”
