The Howard Elliot Memorial Scholarship Endowment was established in 2006 as the last official act of the Shelby County Auburn Club. It is named for Howard Elliot, a 1950 graduate of Auburn University. Howard began working with the Shelby County Club in 2000. He was elected to the Board of the Greater Birmingham Club in 2008 and subsequently served as a member of the Advisory Board of the GBAC. Known affectionately by many as "Papa", Howard Elliot was the recipient of the 2009 GBAC President's Award. Howard left behind many memories for the GBAC and his funeral service was true tribute to his love of Auburn, even down to the Aubie Tiger Tale on the hearse that he planned. He was truly a special person and is missed by the Club.
