Meet Jeannie F. Courington - 2012 Woman of Distinction

Since the inception of the Albertville Boaz Recycling Center in 2009, Jeannie Courington
has volunteered as the executive director and was instrumental in the formation of the organization. She has also helped the city of Boaz start a volunteer recycling program.
Courington is the manager and co-owner of Courington Real Estate, Inc. She has been actively involved in real estate sales, development and management for most of her professional career.
As a resident of Albertville for over 40 years, Courington has served her community through civic, social and religious organizations, including Albertville Beautifi cation Board, Albertville Chamber of Commerce, Boaz Rotary Club, Marshall County Economic Development Council, Marshall County Leadership Challenge and United Way of Marshall County. She was instrumental in forming the Marshall County Board of Realtors and helped establish the
local Multiple Listing Service for realtors. In 2006, she was awarded the title of Albertville Citizen of the Year by the Albertville Chamber of Commerce, the highest recognition a citizen can achieve in Albertville.
Courington says the most valuable lesson she learned through community service
is, “You learn how much you love your community. Helping and teaching others makes a
difference in your daily life.”
