Fisher is a senior at Ridgefield High School. Williams is an architectural designer for LSW Architects in Vancouver.

Both leaders share an intrinsic value of leading with grace, and transparency, while maintaining their core beliefs, noted a press release from The Historic Trust. The two believe that true forward movement only happens when all boats are lifted.

Each recipient was awarded $3,500, which can be used toward continuing education or professional development.

“We take seriously our role in developing emerging leaders,” said Linda Glover, board chair of The Historic Trust. “The Marshall Awards celebrate the quality of leadership this community experiences, as represented by the extraordinary caliber of nominees.”

According to the Trust, The Marshall Leadership Awards celebrate and support local rising leaders who, like General Marshall, demonstrate integrity, candor, courage, and preparedness while serving a greater good.
