Allison Marshall served her fellowship in the Town of Shallotte. She worked closely with the parks and recreation director to plan and execute town-sponsored events. She also conducted a comparative study on municipal benefits, employment, and personnel policies in neighboring jurisdictions, leading to multiple improvements to the Town’s personnel policies. Marshall also conducted a benchmark report on standard operating procedures (SOP) in the event of a water or sewer main break and created an SOP for the Town.

Marshall graduated from North Carolina State University, receiving a bachelor’s degree in political science with a concentration in law and justice and a minor in Spanish. During her time at NC State, she interned on a local mayoral campaign and was director of career and personal development for her sorority, Chi Omega.
