What People Are Saying

“Kudos to you, Marquis, published at 15, and spreading genius to thousands of folks in your community and your social media networks! Marquis, you have been and continue to be a positive force for Paulding County, but now you have taken your GENIUS to the next level as you cultivate genius through the written and spoken word in this book and on social media. I’ll be taking this book to school Monday to share with my 8th graders at your alma mater, AMS. You are a bright beacon of light shining goodness around you. My biggest regret about you Marquis Hill is that I was not fortunate enough to teach you and learn from you, but now will share your words to help cultivate genius in our community.” -Mrs. Woodall, AMS Teacher

“@realmjhill will be the biggest speaker of the next generation 20” -Trent Shelton
