Many schools in our lives are buildings, simple brick and mortar structures, which house rooms and offices occupied by those either simply doing a job or seeking to learn. There are a few however in which we join together with friends and colleagues to find peace on uncertain days, discover new ideas within its walls and the minds of those inside, to discuss historical events, and possibly make history of our own. Some schools have a special place in our hearts, they become more of a home than a school, the people are more of a family. It isn’t just a place of random students and faceless faculty members.
A very finite group of schools possess every quality described above plus the drive of success, desire to learn and educate, along with a yearning for new knowledge and the mastering of technical skills. An understood abundance of pride flourishes as one walks through the doors. The excitement of new skills learned, realized talents of a student and the pride shown on educators’ faces, and productive members of society are the product of our school, every day of every year.
It is with duty, honor, and open doors that this continued perseverance in technical education, guidance, and respect has been passed along since the inception of technical education in Marshall County in 1967. This is Marshall Technical School.
