Tyner Academy Mock Trial Team Coach – 2019 and 2020. In 2018, Marc met with the Principal of Tyner to secure the participation school, which is predominately minority attended, to be the first all black mock trial team in the history of Hamilton County. Marc assembled a team of three incredible attorneys (Brent Burks, Lee Davis, and Jamey Hurst) to help him coach the team to a successful result. The team of talented Freshmen and Sophomores came within a point of winning the second night of competition. He and his coaches are committed to the Tyner Academy for the next three years.
Co-Chair Hunter Museum of American Art’s Spectrum Art Selection Committee – 2017. The artwork selected by this Committee from Galleries in Atlanta, Charleston, Chattanooga, Chicago, Nashville, and New Orleans was auctioned at The Spectrum Gala and raised almost $150,000 for one of the finest art museums in the Southeast. The Hunter promotes education in the arts to the Chattanooga community.
In 2018, Marc initiated the partnership of the Chattanooga Bar Association (CBA) with La Paz Chattanooga to promote education in the law and to foster relationship building to assist in the fight against the unauthorized practice of law which preys upon the Latino community. The partnership also provided the Young Lawyers Division of the CBA with assistance to the Chattanooga community for expungement clinics and held community meetings to provide Powers of Attorney and Wills for those in need.
