Tanis Brown was presented with the San Marcos Inspiration, Leadership and Excellence (SMILE) Award by the San Marcos City Council at the May 11 City Council meeting.
She was nominated by Councilmember Randy Walton for her tireless volunteer work at the San Marcos Historical Society, Heritage Park, the North County Cemetery District, and her many other contributions to the San Marcos community spanning more than four decades.
“For more than 40 years, Tanis has volunteered her time to make our city a better place,” Walton said. “From serving on the Community Services Commission to help guide our Parks Master Plan, to her devotion to preserving San Marcos history as president of the San Marcos Historical Society, Tanis is a super volunteer and it’s an honor to recognize her for her work.”
About the San Marcos City Council’s Civic SMILE Award
There are often community members who rise to the top – clearly reflecting this San Marcos ‘Spirit of Service.’ That’s why San Marcos City Council members initiated the Civic SMILE Award recognition program in March 2021.
Six times each year, a community member is chosen by a specific City Council member to receive recognition and will be presented with a San Marcos Inspiration, Leadership and Excellence (SMILE) Award during a City Council meeting.
