    Founded in 1993 in Kissimmee, FL the 100BWFS membership celebrates 25 years of excellence as they continue to showcase the dedication, compassion, integrity and strong work ethic of this industry while providing scholarships for deserving mortuary students.   
    During the 80th Annual Convention of NFDMA in Myrtle Beach, SC, the 100BWFS focused on passing the torch to the phenomenal next generation while honoring the funeral service greatness of 150 plus years.
    In the next few months we will feature some of the great South Carolina family legacies, trailblazers in education from the historic Atlanta College of Mortuary Science – the institution of Master Morticians – and the 2018 African American Funeral Service Hall of Fame Museum inductees. We are honored to share these stories about funeral service and its heroes. To donate historic pictures, articles, magazines, etc. to the AAFSHFM email Hundredbwfs@aol.com.
