SCCA Solo Director Tasha Marlow Steps Down After 20 Years
TOPEKA, Kan. (Dec. 11, 2006) -- Sports Car Club of America announced this week that longtime employee and current Solo Director Tasha Marlow will be leaving the company at the end of the year.
Originally from Colorado, Marlow began working at the then Denver-based SCCA National Office in 1986. Her first position was that of Divisional ProRally Secretary with some additional responsibilities for the newly acquired ProSolo program. A hands-on experience at a Solo event in Shreveport, La. convinced Marlow she had found her calling, and through her 20-year stint with SCCA Marlow has also served the Rally/Solo department as Coordinator, Administrator, and Manager.
"It's not going to be easy saying goodbye to SCCA," Marlow said. "I want to thank the members, especially the Solo community, for giving me the opportunity to learn, grow and be a part of the SCCA family. It has been a pleasure working with the SCCA staff, and although I admit there were some trying times, all in all it has been a wonderful 20 years."
Marlow's exit comes just after she successfully managed the relocation of The Tire Rack Solo National Championships from Forbes Field in Topeka, Kan., to nearby Heartland Park Topeka. Marlow also oversaw the move from Salina, Kan. to Forbes Field in 1995. Since she began working with SCCA, Solo National entries have nearly doubled.
In addition to her success with Solo Nationals, Marlow was an integral part of The Tire Rack Solo National Tour, guiding the program's development from its first event in 1992 until just over a year ago.
"I would like to thank Tasha for all her contributions to SCCA," SCCA Vice President of Program Development and Operations Howard Duncan said. "She has every reason to be proud of her time with us and SCCA is a better organization as a result of her efforts."
Next up in her professional journey, Marlow plans to study traditional Chinese medicine and oriental body therapy at the Kansas College of Chinese Medicine in Wichita.
Not all ties with SCCA have been severed however, a former E Stock Ladies National Champion, Marlow plans to continue competing in Solo events.
