Celebrating the Work and Person of Special Education Mediation Champion Marshall Peter (video)

Marshall Peter is soon retiring as Director of Direction Service, a multi-program, family support agency founded in 1977 in Eugene, Oregon. Marshall is perhaps best known to the mediation field as the founding Director of CADRE, the National Center on Dispute Resolution in Special Education which Marshall established in 1998.

Here is a video tribute to Marshall that is well worth your watch. Through his work, Marshall has shown us just how much change for the good a person can bring to both our local and national communities.

Mediate.com takes our hat off to Marshall Peter for bringing creative and capable mediation services to the world of special education. Marshall is a true model and hero for us all in showing us how we can bring better processes and better results throughout our society.


Personal Note

I want to offer a special thanks and appreciation to Marshall for selecting Resourceful Internet Solutions, Inc. (RIS) and Mediate.com to develop the Direction Service and CADRE websites. We too have been motivated by Marshall to offer our very best and are deeply and enduringly appreciative for the opportunities and dedication that Marshall has offered RIS and Mediate.com over the years.

I also want to note that fans of Marshall have established a Marshall Peter Legacy Fund and I encourage you to consider making a donation in honor of Marshall and his many decades of exceptional work.
