Marcia (Knapp) Haas is the wife of Grand Valley's president, Thomas J. Haas. Marcia is a native of Union City, Michigan, and is a graduate of Albion College. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Grand Rapids Symphony as a community volunteer.
The "I Am Grand Valley" portrait project was created by students, administrators, faculty, staff, and alumni who volunteered to paint their self portraits. Many had no prior experience and all left their inhibitions at the door to take part of this project and celebrate the diversity within Grand Valley State University.
