Lee Guest has been selected Marvell’s Citizen of the Year for 2013. The award was presented by the Marvell Civic Club’s at its annual dinner theater presentation.
“We are so fortunate to have so many deserving volunteers nominated each year for this honor,” stated Barbie Washburn, president of the Civic Club as she prepared to make the introduction of the community’s latest favorite citizen. “But there is only one winner and this year’s recipient is so very deserving.”
According to Washburn, Guest has been involved in the Marvell Civic Club in almost “every, single project in some manner or another. From cleaning, decorating, cooking, announcing, organizing to cleaning toilets, no job is too big of small for him.”
Guest and his family are active members of the Marvell United Methodist Church, serving on numerous committees. Guest and his family, says Washburn, are extremely active in the community’s volunteer fire department.
Washburn called Guest a guiding force in the Marvell Baseball Association and the Marvell Academy Baseball Organization.
Normally, the award is presented annually at the city’s annual town meeting. Due to schedule conflicts, the award was presented at the civic club’s biggest event of the year.
