Featured Speaker: Robin Ferst Marhaver, Founder of the Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy

Listening to a local Madison, Ga. plant executive discuss the difficulty finding employees who could read at the required level for hiring, Robin Ferst was inspired to start the non-profit Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy in 1999, which she dedicated to fostering literacy and creativity in pre-kindergarten children. Today there are over 80 counties in Georgia that now have programs in their communities.  Mission:  To improve childhood literacy by mailing free books to preschool children aged birth to 5 years of age.

Following a successful business career in Commercial Mortgage Banking, Real Estate development and Private Trust investment management, Robin, a native of Atlanta, Georgia, lived in Madison Georgia where she started the Foundation and recently moved to Amelia Island where she makes her home with her husband Carl.

Robin served as a member of the Georgia Public Telecommunication Commission Board of Directors (GPB) and the Governor’s Commission on Hearing Impaired and Deaf Persons.  Additionally, she served as a member of the Atlanta Speech School and the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education Advisory Board.  

Robin received the Georgia Retired Educator’s Association Educational Contributor Award in 2012, along with Premier Academy’s 40th Anniversary Educator’s Award.  In 2011, Robin received the “Big Voice for Children” award from Voices for Georgia’s Children as one of the state top child advocates. Also in 2011, Robin  became a Paul Harris Fellow of Rotary International and the “ First” honorary member of  PSI State Delta Kappa Gamma.  

Robin was featured in the November 2005 issue of Traditional Home magazine as a 2005 Classic Woman Award winner in celebration of her spirit of volunteerism.  Among her other honors, she is an Atlanta 11Alive Community Service Award recipient, a Shining Star of the Georgia Legislature and was designated as an A&E Community Hero in 2002 by Shirley Franklin, Mayor of Atlanta.
