By special proclamation Mayor Jim Wise recognized U.S. National Forestry Hospitality Queen Haley Nicole Robertson for her accomplishments, allowed posting of signs at Marianna city limits stating "Welcome to the City of Marianna, Home of Haley Robertson, 2008 U.S. National Forestry Hospitality Queen". Haley will represent Marianna and Jackson County nationally through television commercials, billboard advertisements, appearances at state and national fairs across the country, The Special Olympics, Georgia Fall Games, State and National Forestry Festivals, and numerous parades throughout the Southeast. She will be a busy young lady.
Her proud parents are Amanda McCoy and Michael Robertson of Marianna. Congratulations to you all!
