Meet Cassidy Brooke Byles, the 2018 Honorary Grand Marshal of the 2018 Many Christmas Parade on December 22.

This year’s Christmas theme is “A DeLIGHTful Christmas” and it’s certainly an appropriate theme for our honorary grand marshal because Cassidy is a de-LIGHTFUL young person who lights up the life of everyone she meets.

Cassidy is 28 years old. For the last 11 years she has been a quadriplegic, partially paralyzed as the result of a car accident on the Marthaville Road in 2007 when she was attending Many High School.

She has not allowed this to slow her down. She lives at home with her mother, Kathy Scaife and stepfather Jeff Price. The two of them, along with an aide, and other family members including her grandfather, Doyle “Popcorn” Scaife, help Cassidy with her goals and to live a meaningful and busy life.
