Marissa Joyner was a warrior for the community with a huge heart and radiant spirit. She evoked hope and perseverance in everyone she met. She understood that the fight was worth fighting, and it was much bigger than herself. On Saturdays you could find her sharing her passion for cooking at the West Broad Farmers Market or selling her DC Famous Dogs. She is missed dearly missed by us at Athens Land Trust and the greater community. In honor of all the good Marissa has done for the Athens community, this scholarship fund has been established for her two boys. The entirety of your donation in her honor will go toward supporting Marissa’s sons.
