Scholarships offered by the Association of North Alabama Code Officials are funded by the generous donations of our members, by donations from special friends of ANACO and by the many friends of ANACO who attend the ANACO Annual Educational Conference held each year since the founding of ANACO in 1988.

​To all who have attended the conferences and to those who have so graciously donated to the scholarship funds,​ the Officers and Board of Directors of ANACO would like to say THANK YOU.



​The "Big Al" Barnett Scholarship is named for Mr. Al Barnett, of Victory Plumbing in Trussville, Alabama and is a tribute to the work and efforts a man who continues to give his time and resources to provide others with the opportunity to learn and succeed.
