Carr Allison shareholder and retired Mobile County District Judge Judson W. Wells, Sr., has been elected to the prestigious Blackburn Institute Advisory Board, a division of Student Affairs at the University of Alabama. The Institute works to develop a network of student leaders, the Blackburn Fellows, who have a clear understanding of the challenges that face the State of Alabama. Members of the Advisory Board are elected to three year terms. During that time, they are called upon to be mentors to current members and past Fellows as well as attend Institute activities each year. Judge Wells accepted this position with great honor and is thrilled to be a part of this organization.
