Gobel Named Pioneer Day Grand Marshal

03132015 - Cindy Gobel-3

She’s a 5K runner, a cross-country bicyclist, a teacher, and an advocate for youth health and fitness.

For over 33 years, Cindy Gobel has educated the youth of Williams, bringing her blend of instruction and student support.

Born and raised in Williams, Gobel said, “You know you’re from Williams when… you can drive around town and wave at everyone because you know everyone.”

Gobel has been Williams High School’s Physical Education instructor for the last six years.

“I taught fight grade for many years and taught drivers training for 22 years and eight months,” said Gobel, “I also used to coach several sports teams.”

“It’s a lot of fun, and I have a great passion for physical fitness and overall health,” Gobel added.

Goble was chosen for the 2015 Williams Pioneer Day Grand Marshal because of her dedication and encouragement with the wellness and fitness of the youth and for her support of community organizations.

“Cindy goes beyond the call of duty and is continuously giving back to her community,” said Citizens for a Better Williams President, Pat Ash, “She has helped at many non-profit organizations, helped kids with their fair animals, and helps students in need.”

Gobel has been personally responsible for helping raise funds for the Williams High School Gym Sound System and Scoreboard.

“Each year we host a Spring and Fall Fun Run that helps benefit the students in some way,” said Gobel.

Gobel was selected as a shining example for the community of Williams and will be honored as the Parade Grand Marshall during the Williams Pioneer Day on Saturday, June 6, 2015. The parade starts at 10:00 a.m.; street vendors will begin at 9:00 a.m. and the evening will conclude with an annual fireworks display.

“I have been practicing my wave,” said Gobel, “It’s going to be a treasure.”
