Recognizing Our MCS Angels


MCS Angels Award

Awarded to Mayes Ward-Dobbins Funeral Home
Marietta City Schools is honored to present the MCS Angels Award to Mayes Ward-Dobbins Funeral Home in Marietta for January 2016. Mayes Ward-Dobbins is a family owned and operated business that has been in existence since 1923. Mr. Terry Pendley and his 3 sons have owned it since the 1980’s.
At every regularly scheduled Board of Education (BOE) meeting, MCS recognizes an Employee of the Month by providing a plaque and check for $100. Month-after month, for over 15 years, Mayes Ward-Dobbins generously donates this check to the MCS EOM. In total, they have donated more than $13,000 to Marietta City Schools.
Their name is mentioned at every board meeting for this donation, but MCS publicly recognizes Mr. Lamar Newton and Mr. Chad Pendley of the Marietta location, and Mayes Ward-Dobbins for their continued support by naming them as MCS Angels.
