Fran Pearce added to ALBBAA Board

The Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association (ALBBAA) selected a Dallas County resident as a new board member.

Fran Pearce of Browns was chosen by ALBBAA .  Pearce is a lifelong resident of Dallas County and an ardent supporter of Selma and the Dallas County area. She currently serves as a Selma Charity League Sustainer, board member of ArtsRevive, board member of Leadership Selma Dallas County and a graduate of Leadership Alabama.

The fifth generation from her family to live on the farm in Browns, she and her late husband David Pearce Sr. transitioned the once thriving cattle farm into one of the state’s first U.S. Farm Raised Catfish Farms. Pearce Catfish Farms was recognized as Alabama’s Farm of Distinction in 1994. The farm is now run by Fran and David’s two sons, David Pearce Jr. and Will Pearce.

“I am a firm believer that creative thinking and art brings people together, puts life back into historical structures and builds community,” Pearce said. “The greater Selma area, and the Black Belt region as a whole, is full of creative and artistic people that are passionate about their communities. I am looking forward to being a part of this board and continuing to promote the region as a multifaceted destination.”

ALBBAA Founder and board President Thomas Harris said that Pearce will enhance the organization’s ability to promote arts and recreation in the Black Belt.
