On Monday, September 11, at 4:30 p.m., MEDCO President Nick Glew presented an informational slideshow to the Marion Independent School Board featuring several current and proposed area projects benefiting the district.

Glew said MEDCO is working to create an exceptional, thriving business community using intentional strategies, including Community Promise. According to, "Community Promise promotes high-demand careers through MEDCO's Job Profile database. Here, we talk about careers beyond a title and paycheck. We're educating both students and parents about required training, benefits received, and even advancement opportunities within local industry.

"But this is a team effort. Our network of high school counselors design custom academic pathways for students ready to pursue specific careers. We know how to build a plan for every student who connects with a high-demand job in our community."

During the board meeting, Glew also spoke about several specific retail, hotel and residential housing revenue generating, career engaging development projects in Marion.
