Marty was nominated for the honor by his colleagues in the greater St. Louis MASA District. The Pearce award program is a long-standing tradition of the association honoring excellence in education and community leadership among Missouri superintendents. He was to be honored as a nominee during the awards banquet at the MASA Spring Conference on March 25th at The Lodge of Four Seasons at Lake Ozark, Missouri; however, the event was canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis. 

This annual award was instituted in 1987 by Richard and David Pearce, then principals of the Pearce Corporation, a Missouri architectural firm specializing in educational facility planning. The award's purpose is to recognize the hard work and dedication of superintendents and their contributions to the children of Missouri.
