In 2005, Dr Marshall became a Laureate of The Lincoln Academy of Illinois, the highest honor the state can bestow for outstanding achievement.  The Order of Lincoln is awarded by the Governor to six distinguished Illinoisans every year during a special convocation.

As a member of the Academy, Dr. Marshall will be encouraged to nominate potential recipients of the Order of Lincoln and will also vote on and select the six recipients of the Order of Lincoln, to be honored by the Governor 18 months later.

"I hope you will be able to join the distinguished group of proud Americans who have served as General Trustees of the Lincoln Academy over so many years and look foward to the opportunity to welcome you personally to the Lincoln Academy family," said Chancellor Thomas Johnson of The Lincoln Academy.
