VANCOUVER, WA (November 6, 2019) — The Historic Trust and City of Vancouver announce the opening of nominations for the Marshall Adult and Youth Leadership Awards. The annual awards recognize demonstrated leadership, civic engagement, and commitment to public service. The Marshall Leadership Awards were created in cooperation with the Marshall Foundation in Virginia to honor the legacy of this world statesman.  General George C. Marshall lived for two years at Fort Vancouver serving as the commander of the 5th Brigade of the 3rd Division U.S. Army.

General Marshall is best known for the Marshall Plan, the post-war reconstruction of Europe. He also served as Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, and the President of the American Red Cross. “We are pleased to continue the annual Marshall Leadership Awards, recognizing Vancouver’s up and coming community leaders,” said David Pearson, CEO and President of The Historic Trust. A committee made up of business leaders, public officials, Trust board members, and retired military will be involved in the interview and selection process.

Information about the nomination process and criteria can be found at https://www.thehistorictrust.org/marshall-awards/. Nominations close January 10, 2020 and the nominees’ applications are due February 7, 2020. One adult, 35 years or younger, with a four-year college degree, and one high school senior will be selected for each award. The winners will be announced at the Marshall Award Ceremony/Dinner on March 19, 2020 at Warehouse 23 in Vancouver, WA.
