Title: Board Member
Organization/Business: AT&T Pioneers
“Marsha Garnett has worked tirelessly for those with less: homeless veterans, families facing medical treatment for their children, a young lady who can’t afford a prom dress. She has offered a meal, necessary supplies for living on the street and a beautiful dress, shoes and makeup to make a certain night memorable. Marsha gives and gives some more.” – Dan McCrory, Nominator
