    be she said It gives you such a great base work ethic discipline commitment to a good work product The values that you are taught in law school transcend professional lines Those who know Huntley well are not surprised by her success and her desire to give back to the community She is a member of the Auburn University Board of Trustees Chair of the Farrah Law Alumni Society and a motivational speaker with a TedX Birmingham talk to her credit She had visions way beyond her years when she was younger said Olivia Washington who first met Huntley when she was a child in preschool Washington was then the Executive Director of the Community Action Agency that funded the preschool program where Huntley learned how to read Washington saw the roots of advocacy taking ahold of Huntley when she started a tutoring program in high school and raised money from individuals and churches to fund it She gave when she didn t have anything to give in terms of finances to get the materials and supplies she needed to operate community programs Washington said Moments after meeting Huntley sitting quietly in the front row of her first grade classroom at Clanton Elementary School Pam Jones declared she would be the best first grader she has ever had And Huntley has proved her correct It does not surprise me anymore Jones said I just have come to expect the unexpected form Liz Jones was proud when Huntley took the advice of Don Logan former CEO of Time Warner and owner of the Birmingham Barons and wrote and self published her memoir More Than a Bird The book follows her emotional journey through poverty and abuse and it profiles the men and women who helped her succeed including her pastor Elijah Good who eventually took her into his home when she was a teen ager and who she now calls dad A portion of the book s proceeds benefit the Alabama School Readiness Alliance and the Children s Village of Birmingham a group home for neglected and abused children that allows siblings to stay together Together with her co author Cole Peck Huntley is developing a reflection guide for her memoir called DefineYourself so that teenagers can use her life as a guide to make sound choices and decisions Peck is a Birmingham native and an English student at Washington and Lee University Huntley asked him to join her because it s important when you re writing to get perspective from the generation you re dealing with The only explanation Huntley gives for why she has thrived when so many others have not is that God placed people in her life at the exact time she needed them He did all of this she said It s clearly part of a larger plan somewhere January 25 2016 Law School Announces Two Fundraising Efforts The Law School is announcing two fundraising efforts
