Miss America and CASA of Sebastian County

On May 10, 2024, the streets of Sebastian County, Arkansas, were filled with excitement and pride as the reigning Miss America, Madison Marsh, returned for a special homecoming parade. The event was a heartwarming celebration of Madison’s achievements. CASA of Sebastian County advocates past and present were invited to walk in the parade as a touching tribute to her late mother, Whitney Marsh, a beloved CASA volunteer.

CASA of Sebastian County holds a special place in Madison’s heart. She mentioned her mother’s commitment to the CASA program during an interview on The Today Show (3:47 minute mark), highlighting how her mother’s passion for helping children in need profoundly influenced her values and ambitions.

Whitney Marsh, who passed away in 2018, left behind a legacy of compassion and service. She was known for her beautiful spirit and was a blessing to all the children she served. Whitney’s dedication to CASA of Sebastian County was a testament to her character and her unwavering commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of vulnerable children.

In remembering Whitney Marsh and celebrating Madison’s success, the parade in Sebastian County was not just a festive event, but a powerful reminder of the lasting impact that dedicated individuals can have on their communities. Whitney’s spirit lives on through Madison and the many lives she touched through her work with the CASA program, leaving an indelible mark on Sebastian County and beyond.
