District Judge S. Dale Price sworn in, pledges commitment to justice in Talladega County


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – On Sunday, Jan. 21, at 3:00 p.m., S. Dale Price took the Oath of Office at the Talladega County Courthouse in Sylacauga, officially becoming the District Judge for Talladega County Place 2.

Price was set to take the judge’s seat after being officially appointed by Gov. Kay Ivey on Friday, Jan. 12.

The investiture unfolded at a gathering filled with friends, family, and members of the community that left the courtroom with standing room only.

Dr. M. Steve Heartsill, Director of Pastoral Care at Coosa Valley Medical Center, commenced the event with a warm welcome and opening comments. Father Frank Young led the invocation, invoking blessings for the responsibilities that lay ahead.

Chad Woodruff, Talladega County’s Circuit Judge, administered the Oath of Office to Price with his family – wife, Amy, and daughters, Lily Frances and Catherine – standing by his side.

S. Dale Price was raised in Sylacauga and graduated from SHS in 1986. Following high school, he pursued higher education at Huntingdon College, earning a Bachelor of Arts in History and Political Science with cum laude honors in 1991.

Continuing his academic pursuits, Price furthered his legal aspirations and achieved a Juris Doctor in 1994 from the esteemed University of Alabama School of Law in Tuscaloosa.

“This is not my courtroom,” Price said. “This is your courtroom. This courtroom belongs to the people. I’ve simply been given the privilege of working here.”

Closing remarks at the induction were delivered by the newly appointed District Judge who expressed gratitude and shared his commitment to upholding justice in Talladega County.
