Welcome: Mayor Franke, Cedar Hill

Guest Speaker: Marion Jones

Marion Jones is one of the world’s most celebrated athletes.  As a member of the USA Track Team, Marion won five (5) medals, three (3) Gold and two (2) Bronze at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.

For years after her triumphs in the 2000 Olympic Games, allegations that Marion used performance enhancing drugs persisted.  Finally, in October 2007, Marion admitted that despite never testing positive, she had lied to federal investigators and, had in fact used performance-enhancing drugs.

As a result of her confession, Marion was sentenced, and served 6-months in federal prison. Marion voluntarily returned her five (5) Olympic medals, and publicly apologized to her family, friends and fans all over the world.

Marion has now committed her life to inspiring others who face life-challenging situations.

Currently, Marion and her husband, Obadele Thompson reside with their three children, 8-year-old Monty, 4 year-old Amir and 2 year-old Eva-Marie in Austin, Texas.
