Board Candidate 2019

What's your name? Marquis Upshur

Why is the Co-op important to you? As a native South Philadelphian, I am passionate about access to healthy food options in my local community. I also believe that investing in our community has the power to make a big impact. The Co-op is doing both of these things by opening a store in South Philadelphia.

When did you join, and (if applicable), how have you been involved? I joined the Co-op in 2018. Over the last year, I have participated as a Board member of the Co-op.

How will your experience, skills, or unique perspectives strengthen the Co-op board? I feel that my professional human resources background and ability would continue to help strength the co-op's Board. Therefore, I would like to continue serving on the Board in a second term.
