Tuscaloosa Belles Program

History - Knowledge - Beauty - Grace

The Tuscaloosa Belles, founded by the Preservation Society's own Alice McLean Stewart, is a service organization of young women enrolled in the eleventh and twelfth grades of high school in Tuscaloosa County. The Belles are nominated and sponsored by the Century Club of the Preservation Society, the largest of our membership levels.

The young women involved in this organization actively participate in the preservation of the heritage of this community as the youngest members of the Preservation Society. They do this actively through education, involvement in community service, and training for leadership.


To nominate a rising junior to the Tuscaloosa Belles program, you must be an active member of the Society at the Century Club level or higher.  Nominations take place every year typically during the months of May and June.  Current Society members who may nominate young ladies are mailed a nomination form.  The young ladies who are nominated are then sent an application which they must fill out and return by the deadline listed on the form.  After the application is recevied, the nominees are interviewed.  After the interviews, letters of acceptance are mailed to the new members of the Tuscaloosa Belles.
