Christina Cocek Anderson

Since moving to Marshall from Los Angeles, Christina Cocek Anderson has brought her professional background in journalism, publishing, legislative advocacy, and author of a two-volume history-centered, arts-infused curriculum implemented in elementary and secondary schools nationwide to her civic work in our community, state, and region. She and husband, Richard Anderson, former Harrison County Judge and State Senator, renovated, with their partners, the historic Hotel Marshall. They have also worked together on the restoration of the 1901 Courthouse and the establishment of the $1.4 million endowment to assist with the ongoing preservation of the restored Courthouse in perpetuity. Christina, a devoted vegan, also directed Marshall’s successful efforts to win the prestigious National Civic League’s 2015 All-America City Award.
