Megan Marshall is a local Carbon County resident who gives back often and wears many hats in the community.
Marshall is the Boys & Girls Club of Carbon County founder and board president. She is also the kitchen and building designer and construction estimator at Sutherlands. In addition to those duties, Marshall is the Price City parade coordinator and board member for the Castle Valley Community Theater.
The titles she is most proud of are mother and wife. Marshall is mother to a three-year-old girl and step-mother to a nine-year-old boy. She resides with her two children, husband Jason and is a caregiver to her mother Melissa Dawn Bentley in a local home that they built themselves.
About eight years ago, Marshall founded the Boys & Girls Club of Carbon County. Two years ago, Marshall received a scholarship to the University of Phoenix when she entered a competition for being an inspirational mom.
With the support of her close family and friends, Marshall has been studying tirelessly and working toward a associate’s degree in business management with a concentration in entrepreneurship. Happily, Marshall is graduating with her first degree through this program and online classes.
Marshall will be continuing her education and moving on to the bachelors program. She walked in the commencement ceremony at the University of Phoenix campus in Salt Lake City the weekend of May 6.
The business management degree will be beneficial in Marshall’s career at Sutherlands, where she has worked for 11 years.
Marshall is very appreciative of this opportunity that was provided to her only through the Boys & Girls Club. Education is a huge focus and main key element of the Club, providing incentives for improved grades and tutors on staff as well as volunteers. Volunteers are always needed and welcome at the Boys & Girls Club.
“I’m eternally grateful for this community, The Boys & Girls Club and The University of Phoenix for this huge opportunity,” stated Marshall.
