John Marshall High School, Glen Dale, WV, opened September 3, 1968, a consolidation of Moundsville, Benwood-Union and Sherrard High Schools. It was built in a town that never had a high school. The school colors—gold and brown—were a parting from any previous local schools’ colors of orange, blue, red, black, or white. The schedule was far from traditional, based on the book And No Bells Ring by Drs. Delmas Miller and J. Lloyd Trump. Marshall County wanted to do something different, and the results were special.
This 324-paged book chronicles the first 50 years of John Marshall High School with each class represented by a photo collage, candid photos, class roll, and highlights. Other special sections include a “Monarch Alphabet,” fashions through the decades, a tribute to our military, a “then and now” survey, sports highlights, the Wall of Fame, advertising through the years, architectural highlights and the history of how John Marshall High School came to be, shared by those who were on the ground level of making it happen.
