Marcia Swanson of Silver Spring, Maryland is a true leader and advocate within her community who does not hesitate to take on leadership roles. After her career with the Federal Government of over 30 years, Marcia now spends much of her time volunteering for a variety of local organizations.
Marcia is a graduate of Western Maryland College, now referred to as McDaniel College, where she was instrumental in establishing a scholarship fund for students. This scholarship is available to students who are Deaf or hard of hearing and also extends to students who choose a field of study related to working with individuals who are Deaf or hard of hearing.
Marcia spends a great amount of time volunteering and serving a variety of roles within community organizations. She is actively involved in the Center Hiking Club and served as Vice-President from 1997 to 1999. Currently, she serves as Secretary for hike leaders, ensuring members have their “Leader Hike Packs.” She also serves as Secretary of the White Oak National Active and Retired Federal Employees (NARFE) Chapter #1888 and previously held positions as President, Vice-President, Legislation and Treasurer. Additionally, Marcia serves as the Vice-Chair of the Maryland State Legislative Committee.
Marcia’s volunteer efforts extend to working with local middle and high school students in the B-Sharp program. This program provides a classroom setting for suspended students where they have the opportunity to keep up with their homework, talk about their decisions and discuss better alternatives.
We commend Marcia Swanson for her volunteerism and dedication to improving the lives of individuals in her community and are pleased to present her with the Hamilton Relay 2014 Better Hearing and Speech Month Recognition Award for the state of Maryland.
