Katie Walsh, Marketing Director for Opportunity Bank, was elected to the BSI Board of Directors in January 2022!

With heavy hearts, we want to let our friends and supporters know that Marvin Quinlan Jr., BSI’s Board President, colleague and close friend, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday April 20, 2022, at the family ranch in Forsyth, MT. 

Marvin was a natural and experienced leader who understood the challenges of small, rural communities and was extremely knowledgeable about small unstaffed community foundations. A fifth generation Montanan who managed the family ranch, Marvin was a cattle rancher, attorney, business consultant, community advocate, servant leader, and catalyst for change. 

He was actively engaged in diverse issues ranging from early childhood education, affordable housing and elder care to state-wide community building and international agriculture. He wrote for the local, regional, and national publications.  

Marvin was a great inspiration to many people. With joy and gratitude, we celebrate his life of service to humankind.
