Goodbye to Old John Marshall High
Today was the last day of school in the building where I have been a high school teacher for 14 years. For 13 of those years, I was on the faculty of John Marshall High School. This last year I was a member of the Oklahoma Centennial High School faculty. John Marshall is in a brand new facility on NW 122nd Street. But for me, this building will always be John Marshall High School as it has been since the school opened in 1948 when it replaced Britton High School.
Next year we will be in a new building, actually a remodeled building. However, I feel it is good to pay tribute to a building that has educated the students of Oklahoma City for 60 years.
Good bye, John Marshall High.
