Grand Marshal of the 2018 Irondale Christmas Parade will be Brittany Wagner, who delivered an unforgettable presentation at the Chamber’s January 2018 membership luncheon. Brittany is best known as an academic counselor to athletes featured on the Netflix original docuseries, “Last Chance U.” Known for her repeated question to those athletes, “Do you have a pencil?,” Brittany began her company, “Ten Thousand Pencils” in 2017 and now provides life coaching, academic counseling, and motivational speaking services nationwide.
A special thank you to Alabama State Representative for the 45th District, Dickie Drake, for sponsoring this year’s parade.
