Robert L. Marx, who spent the bulk of his career working for SEARCH and who was a significant leadership presence in the earliest days of Project SEARCH, passed away May 2, 2014, in Sunnyvale, California, after a brief illness. He is survived by his wife, Mary Helen, five children, and eight grandchildren.
Bob retired in January 2000 as a Senior System Specialist, and the SEARCH Board honored him later that year with the O.J. Hawkins Award, our highest practitioner honor.
Mr. Maury Mitchell, who has served as Alabama’s representative on the SEARCH Membership Group since 2011, was appointed to the SEARCH Board of Directors May 8.
Mr. Mitchell is Director of the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center.
He fills a vacancy on the 15-member Board created by the departure of Mr. David Jobes, the SEARCH Membership’s Iowa representative. Mr. Jobes resigned from the Membership Group earlier this month after taking a new position within the Iowa Department of Public Safety.
