Past Winners

Mark and Patricia Malcolm

Longtime Plymouth residents, community supporters and historic preservationists in the City of Plymouth, the Malcolms truly exemplify putting both time and talents to work for their community and creating the best version of Plymouth for future generations to enjoy.

Their commitment to historic preservation of some of Plymouth’s most iconic and treasured buildings is a passion behind which they have given countless hours, sweat equity, and millions of dollars.

Their saving, restoring and repurposing both the historic post office building (now Westborn Market - Plymouth) and Central Middle School (now PARC - Plymouth Arts & Recreation Complex) is a legacy that will positively impact Plymouth for years to come. Both Mark and Patty have served on City boards (DDA and HDC). Patty is a founding member of the Plymouth Preservation Network, is on the Board of Plymouth Pollinators, and the couple lends their support to many other worthwhile Plymouth non-profit organizations, which helps contribute to the vibrancy and reach of these groups.
