Schlechty Named Grand Marshal of 2012 New Madison Community Tri-Village School Fair

“Supporting Our Community Through the Generations” is the theme of the 2012 New Madison Community Tri-Village School Fair and the family of Grand Marshal, Monyca George Schlechty shines with generations of her family being a part of the school fair.

“My grandpa, Kenny George was chairman of the Pony Show in 1965 and 1966 which was held on the ball diamonds at the school. My dad Dick George was a committee member for the Pony Show in 1966, 1967 and 1968. My mother the late Peggy George served on the committee in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Our daughter Kami Hollinger has been on the committee since 2007 and I have enjoyed being on the committee since 2000, with six of those years being President. Our daughter Kara Graham is not an official member of the committee but helps me with the baking contest and is a first grade teacher at Tri-Village. My uncle and aunt, Dave and Beck George and sons Rocky, Mike and Troy have also helped in past years with the greased pig contest.”

“All New Madison or Tri-Village graduates, my family now has the fifth generation attending Tri-Village schools as grandsons Jayden and Kasyn Hollinger are in first grade and kindergarten.”

Monyca and Bob Schlechty celebrated 31 years of marriage this past March. They have three children; Josh and wife Amy of Harrisburg, North Carolina and grandchildren Cameron, Cadyn and Emma Grace; Kami and Adam Hollinger of New Madison and grandsons Jayden and Kasyn Hollinger; and Kara and Zac Graham of New Madison whom are both teachers at Tri-Village School.

“I have sincerely enjoyed working with members of the Tri Village communities and school officials. When our committee President Lauren Armstrong announced at our follow up meeting last year that I was chosen as Grand Marshal for 2012, I couldn’t believe it. I truly enjoy organizing events and working for the community. I appreciate the honor of being chosen to represent my family as well.”

Monyca is a member of the Tri-Village Athletic Hall of Fame, New Madison Community Tri-Village School Fair Committee, New Madison Tri-Village Alumni Committee, past junior high volleyball coach and fifth and six grade basketball coach, grandsons T-Ball coach, assistant coach for girls jr. high softball and past member of New Madison Fourth of July Committee. In her spare time she enjoys reading, crocheting, sewing, yoga, zumba, spending time with friends and family and playing with her grandchildren.
