Jack Mitchell Memorial Scholarship Fund
At the request of the Mitchell Family, the Alabama Grocers Association has started the Jack Mitchell Memorial Scholarship Fund. For those of you who would like to contribute to this fund, please use the form below.
Mr. Jack Mitchell was a long-time member of the Alabama Grocers Association and a highly-respected member of the grocery community winning prestigious awards including the National Grocers Association’s Spirit of America Award and the AGA’s Wholesaler of the Year Award. In the late 1950s, Jack joined his father and expanded a small wholesale feed and produce business then called Albertville Produce Company into a full line wholesale food distributor renamed Mitchell Grocery Corporation. Today Mitchell supplies food and food related products to more than 250 stores in 5 Southeastern states and along with their 35 company owned retail stores employs more than 2,000 Alabamians.
The grocery industry in our state has lost a visionary leader. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Jack over the years have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor.
