Our hearts are heavy with the recent passing of John Arthur Marshall, the Co-Founder and CEO of the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades (ARMF.) However, his family, friends and long-time foundation supporters know that it is imperative that his work continue. The Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades, with support from generous, past donations looks forward to presenting the 2016 Student Intern Program (SIP) and Sea Level Rise Symposium.
We are thrilled to announce that the Foundation will partner this year in the transition of both programs to the Everglades Foundation. In 2017, the programs will be named in John Marshall’s honor and will complement the current Everglades Foundation education programs. This will ensure that John’s favorite two programs continue to serve his dream of Everglades education for the next generation. This will also allow our friends and supporters an opportunity to continue being involved with these efforts.
The Everglades Foundation is one of the most respected environmental organizations in the country and we are proud that it has embraced the legacy of John Marshall and the importance of these programs.
Both organizations have joined to form the John Marshall Everglades Legacy to fund these programs in the future. Nancy Marshall, co-founder and president of ARMF will lead the effort.
To continue one of John Marshall’s favorite traditions, ARMF and the Everglades Foundation are hosting a Meet the 2016 Summer Interns reception, Monday, June 6, 2016, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. We will be showcasing the new John Marshall Everglades Legacy, introducing our partners at the Everglades Foundation and, of course, welcoming our 2016 interns who will be our next stewards of the environment. For more details about the event, contact Nancy Marshall, at 561.233.9004 or email email@example.com.
The summer interns and their families, Legacy Ambassadors, mentors and special guests will celebrate the intern graduation and hear about their work at a Graduation Breakfast, July 28, 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. For more details about the event, contact Nancy Marshall, at 561.233.9004 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Planned for the fall, we are coordinating with the Everglades Foundation. Details to come.
