About

For nearly 25 years, Lucy gave so much to UAB via Lucy’s Coffee and Tea, her welcoming little coffee shop where so many faculty, staff and students worked and studied. Lucy’s started with a cart, serving the employees of UAB’s hospital, clinics and schools. 

Once the shop opened, it became a home away from home for thousands of UAB students as they studied and prepared for their rigorous professional careers. Through the years, Lucy and her employees greeted people by name when they popped in for “the usual.” 

 Regular customers could order on prepaid credit — the tally kept on a giant chalkboard — when they may not have had a wallet handy, then grab whatever fuel they needed with the words, “it’s on the board.” Lucy’s customers were so loyal she was able to drive off a national coffee chain, which opened, and then closed, next door. 

 Now, her longtime friends and customers are raising money for a UAB student scholarship in her name, to put money “on the board” for deserving students and keep that spirit of support alive for future Blazers.

 You have the opportunity to honor Lucy for her loving service to our UAB community by giving to a student scholarship in her name. 

The Lucy Bonds Student Scholarship will help ensure our deserving students are able to continue their education—a truly meaningful tribute to a person who took care of so many of us for so long. 

Please join us in honoring Lucy by making your gift today.
