Marvin began volunteering with the DHM/CET in early September and quickly became a wonderful asset. His background in accounting helps with our financial system conversion in particular but more importantly his demeanor and personality remind us of the incredible volunteers in our community. Belinda Griffin, Director of Finance and Administration, says of Marvin: “He’s great to work with because he quietly accomplishes important tasks. He doesn’t expect or require a lot of fanfare and for that he fits in with our team seamlessly.” We want to share a little about this amazing volunteer with the rest of our community.
Marvin, tell us a little about yourself.
I was born in Dallas and grew up here. A goal of mine is to see a game from all the major league baseball parks in the country. I’ve been to 16 of the 30 teams’ parks. I’ve taken a yoga class on a beach from both coasts (in Massachusetts and California). I’ve seen a taping of the Tonight Show and the Daily Show.
