The Marvin's Garage Doors Scholarship in honor of Marvin Brown

Up to $1,000 for 2023 a graduating senior from Forbush High School seeking a degree or certificate related to a career in electronics, welding, or construction.

This occupational training scholarship honors Marvin Brown, founder of Marvin’s Garage Doors, and is focused on training for careers in the trades such as electronics, construction, or welding. Allen and Chandra are the 3rd generation of husband-wife owners of Marvin’s Garage Doors, founded on the principles of Allen’s grandfather and then further built by his father and mother, Lloyd and Kathy. Those principles center around hard work and superior care for customers. A scholarship seemed the perfect way to honor Marvin and give back to the community that has supported and encouraged their families for more than 100 years.

In addition to entering the fields of electronics, welding, or construction, the student may be enrolled either full-time or part-time and demonstrate good character and ambition.
