2023 Grand Marshall
Mr. steve Reeder
Most of you may know him as a celebrated teacher at Monrovia High School or the town historian, and now the Monrovia Festival Grand Marshall 2023. Mr. Reeder moved to Monrovia in the fall of 1977. He attended the first kindergarten class in 1980. Mr. Reeder has been very involved in researching and sharing the history of Monrovia. As a history teacher at Monrovia High School, he includes our town’s history in his lessons. He hopes to inspire his students to have pride in their small town and a deeper connection to their town. Mr. Reeder is also a member of the Alumni Association. He developed the Alumni Hall of Fame and the Student of the Month for Monrovia schools. Mr Reeder has embraced the community, and their children, for 25 years as teacher, which is a huge accomplishment. We are so very proud of Mr. Reeder and are honored to celebrate him throughout the festival.
