Teresa Hayes, shown Wednesday at her office at United Country Realty, has been named the grand marshal of the Nodaway County Fair Parade hosted by the Greater Maryville Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors.

MARYVILLE, Mo. — Teresa Hayes has been named grand marshal of the Nodaway County Fair Parade.

The Greater Maryville Chamber of Commerce board chose Hayes because of her ties to the community.

“I want to say thank you for the nomination,” she said. “I am excited and feel very humbled.”

In the past Hayes had her own small business and now works at United Country Realty, so she feels very connected to the city and its residents.

“I love Maryville and that’s why I try to serve and be a part of it,” Hayes said. “I try to give back to it because it’s been really good to me.”

She is excited to ride in a nice vehicle. Hayes joked that she hopes it’s not a truck for fear of falling out of it.
