The Lewis H. Marshall Award
2013 Award Recipient: Nicholas Ferenchak, West Chester University
Lewis Marshall was the Secretary/Treasurer of West Goshen Township. He was also the Secretary/Treasurer of the Chester County Association of Township Officials (originally the Chester County Association of Township Supervisors), and a member of the Executive Committee of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors.
CCATO approved the Lewis H. Marshall Award in or around 1972. Mr. Marshall was alive when the decision was made for the award, but not in good health. He passed away before the first award was made; in fact his son and daughter made the presentation when they were home for his memorial service. The award was made not at the convention, but at the library of what was then known as West Chester College.
The CCATO board recently established a Lewis H. Marshall subcommittee, comprised of the Vice President of CCATO, a Township Manager, and a faculty representative of West Chester University. This award is presented annually to a student of West Chester University to honor the legacy of Mr. Marshall.
