Parade grand marshal
Debbie Morelock has been named grand marshal for the Feels Like Home Parade set for 10 a.m. Saturday. She was selected for her efforts as a “Big” with Big Brothers Big Sister, her support of the military, her entrepreneurial spirit, dedication to the Brownwood Reunion Celebration and numerous other civic activities.
