President John Price McGiffert, Jr. was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where he had the privilege of serving as the President of the Student Government Association and Key Club at Tuscaloosa Academy, graduating first in his class after attending the institution for 15 years. Having been selected as a member of the Alabama Independent School Association All-State Academic Team, an AISA Student-Athlete Winner, and as the Tuscaloosa Area Star Senior, Price knew he wanted nothing more than to continue his career in academics, leadership, and service at the Capstone upon graduating from TA. While majoring in Civil Engineering and Minoring in General Business on the STEM Path to the MBA, Price has maintained his 4.000 GPA and his status on the President’s List and remains ever thankful for the numerous opportunities the University has given him. After serving as a page for United States Senator Richard Shelby, and holding the office of SGA Senator and Vice President of External Affairs, Price feels it is truly a dream come true to be serving as the SGA President at the University of Alabama, and is eager to get started bettering the student experience at the Capstone.
