Ron Wagner, the supervisor of the Marysville Volunteer Program (MVP) group that assists the Marysville Police Department, was recently honored with a 2019 Governor's Volunteer Service Award. 

"We are drawn to stories of people who don't quit, and our Volunteer Service Award honorees are outstanding representatives of that kind of perseverance," Gov. Jay Inslee said. 

Wagner was one of several people throughout the state and the only one from Snohomish County recognized for outstanding commitment and achievements in volunteerism last year Awardees were honored at an April 12 ceremony at the Executive Mansion in Olympia followed by an on-field tribute at the Seattle Mariners game that evening co-presented by the Mariners and Serve Washington. 

"People like Ron Wagner, who give of themselves for the betterment of our community, are Marysville's greatest asset," Mayor Jon Nehring said. "Thanks to Ron's leadership and all the MVP volunteers who assist our police officers in so many ways, Marysville is a safer place." 

Wagner has volunteered with the Marysville Police Department since 2011. As supervisor of the Marysville Volunteer Patrol, he helps interview new applicants, supports the MVP training program, sets the monthly patrol schedule and schedules MVP volunteer support. In 2018, he logged more than 569 volunteer hours supervising 20-25 volunteers and scheduling them for 14 citywide events. 

The MVP team last year logged 4,009 hours, conducted 1,721 school checks, completed 2,990 business and 1,045 home vacation checks, checked the city's parks 1,169 times and checked for disabled parking violations 1,696 times. 

"Marysville citizens and business owners love this group of volunteers who are consistently visible and interacting with them, which is a true testament to Ron's ability to lead such a successful team," Marysville Police Cmdr. Larry Buell said.
