Andy Marshall will be honored as this year’s recipient of the Ora J. Thompson Service Award, in honor of his generous support of the Club.
“A former Club kid himself, Andy Marshall’s dedication to the Club is hard to match,” Club CEO Robyn Peery says. “We are so grateful for his steadfast support of our kids. He has brought in new resources, advocated for the Club, recruited new supporters, and volunteered countless hours of his time. Without Andy’s support, we would not be where we are today – serving 1,200 kids per year across Maury and Giles Counties. We are so excited to recognize him as this year’s Ora Thompson Service Award recipient.”
Boys & Girls Clubs of Maury County would also like to thank Gold Sponsors First Tennessee Bank and Maury Regional Hospital; Silver Sponsor Heritage Bank; Car Sponsor Parks Motors; Host Sponsor Puckett’s Grocery & Restaurant; and Program Sponsor PaperWeight Printing.
