There may be some years when MarionMade! chooses not to host a large formal event to pay tribute to the Celebrate Marion honorees. We have found other methods to honor these outstanding recipients. To hear more about their amazing stories and see highlights from the events, please visit the links below.
With the pandemic of COVID- 19 and the shutdown of events for the safety of our community, MarionMade! chose to not host an in-person event. Instead, we decided to host the salute of our selection of 10 amazing people, places, products, and programs in a video. The video link below will allow you to see the honorees’ acceptance speeches and a short biography about each. The video also has a wonderful intro piece created by the talented Hunter Yancey, a young man still in high school, who clearly loves where he lives, works, plays, and learns.
We encourage you to watch the videos and read each honoree’s amazing story linked below. We greatly appreciate our sponsors who continue to supported MarionMade!
