Marcia Lucas - President Since 2006
Marcia Lucas has been a business owner and youth leader over the past 25 years. She has received an award for promoting human welfare from the former Governor, Cecil Underwood. A former student of Marshall University, she studied Greek and Art. Marcia is also a former 1st Runner Up of Mrs. West Virginia America and Winner of Mrs. Globe West Virginia in 2000.
Already an author, her published book is entitled, In Search of a Crown, Marcia has been working on a second book for the past several years, which has already incited interest from a prominent film producer (script and production tentative for 2013). Marcia’s diversions have included song writing, woodworking, restoration of historical structures, and portrait painting.
In the past, Marcia organized and participated in a Walk-A-Thon to benefit her community, personally walking 38 miles to raise funds for those in need. Marcia has pursued flight school and raised her children to expect to accomplish many such adventures; her son, Benjamin Aaron, was accepted to Marshall University at the age of only 16, but on January 13th of 2007, Marcia’s 3 children, Benjamin Aaron (19), Angel Ruth (17), and Quentin Davis (14) precious lives were taken in the Emmon’s
Fire in Huntington West Virginia.
Marcia’s son Ben,
had worked with her to write songs for the first annual Lift
Up benefit, and he was an inspiration to so many with his
desire to see children given hope. His music was his way of
reaching out, and Marcia has worked to create a CD of Ben's
music that will allow all to know her son's heart and desire
to see children given hope and help.
The endeavor to see
abused Orphans and other mistreated children cared for was a
goal of her children and is a goal for Marcia.
