Dann L. and Connie J. Marble (Dann L. and Connie J. Marble Education Scholarship)
Dann and Connie Marble met on the Ashland College campus and were married in 1967. They have two daughters and two grandchildren. Dann has been a licensed funeral director and embalmer for the past 47 years. He is active in the Young Men’s Business Club and is a member of the Masonic community. Connie has been an educator for over 45 years spending most of her career at Ashland High School and Ashland University. She is a member of the Ashland County Community Foundation Board of Trustees, served on the ACCF Women’s Fund Steering Committee for six years, is a member on the Ashland City Schools Foundation Board, and is active in Garden Study Club and Amicae per Annos Sorority. The Marbles are members of the First Presbyterian Church of Ashland and enjoy traveling.
Establishing an educational scholarship was important to Dann and Connie. Dann’s parents were both long time educators in the Ashland community. Connie’s philosophy of education is to teach with passion, dedication, empathy, and enthusiasm which effectively impacts students and provides a strong foundation for lifelong learners.
This scholarship established through the ACCF will continue to provide young people in our community the support to accomplish their goals. A gift to the foundation is similar to the gift of a devoted teacher – neither stops giving.
