This town is not just a town, it is a home. The community if very involving. Everyone cares about one another. There have been many fundraisers to help students here. There are programs to help students. One of these programs called the Backpack Program helps kids with their school supplies and food during school if they could not afford it. The town government looks out for their town. They only want to better citizens’ living experience. The school in Marshall helps prepare their students for life. They have many public service clubs to get people involved in their community. The school is also very safe, so Marshall is a very good place to start a good life.

Marshall is a safe, welcoming, and a small rural town. Our education system is very outstanding in my opinion. Overall, the people in this town all act like one big family. The only thing I would like to change about this town is something nice for the youth to be able to do on the weekends. Whether it is a roller skating rink, movie theatre, mini-golf course, etc. Other than our sports teams, there really isn’t a lot to do for the kids who aren’t as athletic, or kids that just want to have some fun outside of sports.
Marshall is a very family friendly place to live or visit. I have personally experienced only great things in Marshall.
