2021 Grand Marshal for the Parade
During a year like none of us have ever seen before, Mark Hensley clearly emerged as a leader and an innovator in his field and for the people of this region. He made the process simple and safe for every person who wanted the COVID 19 vaccine. His staff worked tirelessly to streamline the process at the Health Department, set up remote vaccine sites at area workplaces and to offer as many options as possible, even going to people’s homes who were not able to travel to get the vaccine. Simply, he and his staff went above and beyond and he still continues to do so to ensure the area population is vaccinated, safe and healthy. Great job, Mark. We all commend you and your work.
