From Farm Boy to Congressman
The Life of Carl Elliott
When Carl Elliott was eight years old, he saw a U.S. Senator make a speech and knew right then that, someday, he wanted to go to congress. He worked his way through the University of Alabama, served at President of the SGA, went to law school and, later, was elected to congress where he was one of Alabama’s finest leaders, sponsoring legislation for libraries and writing the bill that helped create student loans. Thousands of students, who might not otherwise go, attend college every year because of Carl Elliot.
