Con Marshall is "Chadron Citizen of the Year"

Lately, we've been proudly posting several articles penned by long-time good friend Con Marshall.  We can't begin to count the many blessings that Con has bestowed on us and so many other people in Chadron and across western Nebraska.  He and his wife, Peggy, are class acts.  So it came as no surprise when Con was selected as the 2010 Chadron Citizen of the Year.  CSC's Justin Haag wrote the following item that has been sent out to friends of Chadron State College.

Con Marshall, Chadron State College’s former director of information services and sports information, was named the Chadron’s 2010 Citizen of the Year by the Chadron Record newspaper this week. The announcement was made in Wednesday’s edition.

The article contained testimonials from many of Marshall’s friends and acquaintances, who pointed out the longtime journalist’s knowledge of northwest Nebraska history, commitment to quality reporting and loyalty to Chadron and its sports teams.

Chadron Record reporter Kerri Rempp, the article’s author, wrote that Marshall's name has become "practically synonymous" with Chadron.

“Marshall has worked tirelessly over the years promoting Chadron and Dawes County and the people who call the area home,” she wrote.

Marshall directed CSC’s information services efforts for 36 years ending in 2007. Since stepping down from that role, he has continued to work as an information officer at CSC, completing a number of special projects for the college. One of the projects is a history book about the institution’s first 100 years which will be published later this year.

I live and work in the Dominican Republic. Musician and writer. From Idaho. I am finishing a novel that is .. at one moment,going to swoop through Chadron. Today, with I`net, one can get right in there and see the place. And your Chadron looks like a wonderful and special place. I am reading Eric Erickson`s work about the Sioux - and thinking, of course, of the Black Hills to the north of you. I am from Idaho .. and it is comforting to imagine that a place is ongoing within some - many - most of the values that have given our country its canon. All the best to you and congratulations to Mr. Marshall.
