Facts about the Golden Horseshoe

 

    

Old GHS Steps from Margaret Miller Goodwin

Margaret Miller Goodwin, Class of 1948, has advised that Glenville State College intends to repair the old GHS steps and add a handrail for use by students.  Some have suggested erecting some type of a plaque, flag pole, or other monument in remembrance of the old Glenville High School.  Dick Barrett, class of 1950, originally brought it up at our reunion banquet a couple of years ago and made an impassioned plea that the steps be preserved.  Recently Tom Ratliff, from GSC, contacted Margaret and stated that it was GSC's intention to repair the steps, including railings, install some lighting and connect them with the sidewalk that comes down the hill in front of Goodwin Hall.  The college has agreed to pay for the repair and upgrade, but the GHSAA would be responsible for whatever we decide to erect in memory of Glenville High School.  Margaret Ann reminisced that her father worked for the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and helped build those steps.  GSC President Pete Barr and his wife Betsy have told Margaret they will personally donate to this project.  We are open to suggestions about what would be an appropriate memorial.  Please forward any suggestions you might have to Richard "Dick" Riddle, 324 E. 7th St., Weston, WV 26452 or Margaret Ann Goodwin, P.O. Box 40, Montezuma, OH 45866.  Please do so as soon as possible as we would like to make a decision and get the project underway.
