  • Shelby's Fabulous 5: Mary Marshall

    Mary Marshall spent 40 years coaching youth sports, ever since graduating from high school in the early 1950s.

    A single mother, Marshall, who found herself divorced at an early age, raised 7 children on her own, which in itself is no small accomplishment.

     “And they all went to college,”  she said with well-deserved pride.

    Marshall, who was quite athletic herself, had a passion for sports at an early age, coaching softball, soccer and baseball even before graduating from the Lincoln Institute in Simpsonville in 1952.
