Alumni

WELCOME...

The Marbury Alumni Association is alive and well with a robust group of alumni striving to provide services, benefits and activities of interest to the alumni and foster an alumni body which is interested in the affairs and functions of the school, and to provide such assistance to the school as may from time to time be requested of it.


PRESIDENTS MESSAGE...

 

On November 1, 2016, it was with great honor I accepted the position of President of the Marbury Alumni Association.   I felt in my heart I wanted to give back to Marbury High School for what the school had done for me.   Starting in 1951 with Mrs. Alice Arnold to 1963 with Mrs. Josephine Yarbrough and way too many principals, teachers, friends and classmates that help educate and shape my life.

Marbury High School was instrumental in my well rounded education, patriotism to my country, family values, spiritual values, love for my friends, good communication skills, playing by the rules, obeying the law, etc.

Merle Haggard said he was proud to be an “Okie from Muskogee”. I am proud to be a “Bush Okie”, “Country Boy”, “Red Neck” and other names I have been called from Marbury.

The Marbury Alumni Association’s goal now is to help raise money to give to the school to help aid teachers in the classroom, media center, etc. in the form of computers, projectors, reading material, motivational banners, etc.

With donations from alumni, former students, friends, etc, we help students get the best education possible.   Donations can be made in memory of, or in honor of a Principal, Teacher, Worker, Parent, Student, Classmate or Friend. Donations can be made anytime of the year, so please make a donation from your heart!

 

Thank You,

John Alan Williams

President


 Thanks from the Principal...

The Marbury High School Alumni Association has been a great asset to my school. Volunteering their time and resources has had a significant impact on the teachers and students alike. 

The association’s fundraising efforts have paid for several items.  We now have a beautiful announcement sign on the front lawn.  The sign not only displays important events, but it also helps people notice the school. 

Motivational banners are displayed in the hallways.  The banners add to the overall look of the school.  They also promote responsible behavior and the importance of doing well in school. 

I am very excited about the technology the alumni has helped us purchase.  The association’s contribution also helped us obtain several desktop computers.  We now have a fully equipped media center.  Furthermore, each teacher has an ELMO.  This device greatly enhances the teachers’ ability to present information more clearly during their lessons.    

Finally, I wish to express my personal appreciation for the Alumni Association.  I am grateful for everything that has been done for Marbury High School, and I look forward to our future partnership.
