AWARD RECIPIENT: Recently at the May meeting of Michigan Association of Retired School Personnel (MARSP) Osceola County Chapter, Gordon Grice was awarded the 2015 Distinguished Service Award for the chapter.

Grice has been an exceptional member and attends the Osceola County Chapter meetings. His willingness to assist our chapter in whatever is needed has been rightly seen by all members. His thoughtful suggestions become a reality for the group.

Gordon has made a wooden bench every year since he has been a MARSP chapter member. His first bench was given to MARSP Osceola Chapter President Marie Wilkerson in 2004 when she had been elected to the state MARSP Board. His latest bench was awarded to MARSP Chapter Service 2014 recipient Nelda McCrocklin. In other years, he has donated a bench for each of our annual fall scholarship auctions. His benches are a sought after commodity. He also donates other hand-made wooden items for auctions and other monthly meetings.

The MARSP Osceola County Chapter appreciates Gordon’s support and is honored to award him this distinguished honor. (courtesy photo)
