If there's one name in West Alabama that is underrated, it's probably Eugene Tinker. I know I talk about him a lot and highlight the things he does, but I have a good reason to do so.

Mr. Tinker, though modest, is the founder and CEO of a worldwide IT company, but he's from Sawyerville, AL. The town is basically unknown outside of West Alabama, but he's slowly putting it on the map.

As the owner and operator of Jay's Farm Place, he hosts a number of activities including two concerts each year, an annual back to school event; and tonight, he's hosting a model call for his clothing line.

He's looking for models from the area to represent his brand, which is being taken nationwide. This is in addition to all of the scholarships he gives to area students as well as making sure the children (especially in rural areas) have a great start to the school year.
