The Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce partnered with the Prattville-Autauga Character Coalition to hold their eighth annual Character Luminary Award Luncheon on Wednesday. The event was sponsored by Arrow Pest Control. 

The Prattville-Autauga community is one of only three "Communities of Character" in Alabama. The award luncheon allows the community to come to recognize the 2017 Character Luminary Award winners.

Eight awards were given to individuals, business and organizations that served as role models in the community. The recipients must show good character values while making a difference in the community. 

The awards were presented for the following,

• Business of Character - BWS Technologies

• Citizen of Character, Female - Ann Boutwell

• Citizen of Character, Male - Joseph F. Mathis

The president of the Character Coalition, Catherine Sanford Porter stated, “One of the important principles in creating a culture of character is that you will get more of whatever you choose to recognize or celebrate; if you celebrate good character you will see an increase in good character. By recognizing those in our community that have displayed exemplary character in their personal and public lives, we are shining a light on the importance of good character in our community.”

The recipients of the awards are nominated through the community and must reside within Prattville or Autauga County or have a business or organization that is in the area of Elmore County that lies within the city limits of Prattville.
