In addition, the Tournament of Roses will be honoring him at the Rose Bowl game that day during half-time. So, please tune in!

This represents over 38 years of hard work, dedication to young people and commitment to our community. So, we celebrate!

Many blessings to you and yours this holiday season!

It's been 39 years in the making and something he's desired to do for a long time.  It's a great moment in his life and one I'm sure he'll always cherish.

Regarding the interview, unfortunately, due to oversight, the association forgot to issue a parking pass, which resulted in him missing not only the interview, but most of the game. It was an honest oversight and would’ve been icing on the cake.

Despite this setback, it was an experience Marvin will never forget and regardless of how it all turned out, we are SO very proud of him! Even a rose has thorns. You may get pricked and endure some pain, but it doesn’t detract from its beauty.
