Since 2018, Shariq Marshall has been the Operations, Development & Communications Coordinator for Arm In Arm, a non-profit organization based in Trenton and Princeton that helps meet people’s basic needs for food, shelter and job training. Shariq attended Rider University on a
full 4-year scholarship and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations/Image Management. Arm In Arm has a historic partnership with BlackRock, one of the world’s leading providers of investment, advisory and risk management solutions.
Shariq grew up in Paterson, NJ, with his supportive mom and younger sister. A Tri-County scholarship enabled him to attend DePaul Catholic High School for four years where, his guidance counselor said, he lived his life with honor.
“I was so blessed by the donors,” said Shariq. “Without Tri-County I don't know where I'd be. Meeting donors at the Tri-County dinner was a great opportunity to meet people who didn't even know me but cared about me.”
