She graduated Jackson High School, Class of 1961 followed by earning her associate degree in accounting from Alabama Christian in 1963. Mary Alice enjoyed crossword puzzles and spending time at the ballpark watching and encouraging her nieces, nephews and other special children she was honored to love. She was also an avid fan of the University of Alabama football team, it was not uncommon to call her during a game and hear her shaker swooshing in the air. One of Mary Alice's deepest passions was the Racking Horse Breeders Association of America. Mary Alice was a founding member when the Association was founded in 1972 and served as an officer for many years. She held the distinct honor of having judged more world celebrations than any other judge in the history of the industry. In 2019 at the Racking Horse World Celebration Mary Alice Bohannon was inducted into the Racking Horse Hall of Fame, a well deserved honor.
