At the Master Games of Alabama Olawhatti Borden was honored with the Golden Alumni Award. Interim Director of the Senior Center, Andrea Morris, accepted the award for Borden, who passed away last year at the age of 77.

Borden won the Alabama state checker championship three times.

Morris, who first met Borden when she started working at the senior center five years ago said that Borden introduced himself to her the first time by saying that “he was the best checker player and that nobody could beat him.”

Borden would travel from city to city and play checkers.

He was the only person going to the state games when Morris started working and from there more interest in the games evolved.
