Marlon has dedicated over 11 years of service to MMSD, and is the bedrock and heart of the Mad West community. Not only does he speak truth to our students, staff, and families, but he backs up that truth with his actions. In a school of over 2,300 students and 200 staff, Marlon has the desire and uncanny ability to remember every single person’s name. He can read what each person needs with a simple look, and generously fills that need with love: a kind word, a silly song, a loving-but-firm warning. Whatever is needed, Marlon provides it or finds someone who can. He is an exemplar of Black Excellence and is a role model for students and staff alike.
Marlon and his family--a wife and three sons--need their Madison community to love and support them in the same way that he has dedicated his life loving and supporting our children and staff. The appeals process can be long, and both emotionally and financially draining. Like any family, the Andersons have bills to pay, especially for Marlon’s ongoing health needs. Now more than ever, we have to protect and uplift our own while our beloved Marlon and his family go through this unnecessary ordeal.
One way to show your support for Marlon and his family is to donate to this fund.
