Memorial celebrates integration


A memorial celebrating the integration of Aracoma High School and Logan High School was recently dedicated at a ceremony on Midelburg Island. Alumni and one faculty member of Aracoma High School gathered to remember their school’s contribution to Logan County and celebrate the integration of Logan County Schools. Bricks from each school were used in the construction of the memorial, and the bricks were joined together in the middle of monument representing the integration of Logan County Schools.


West Virginia Teacher of the Year 1979 and graduate of Aracoma High School, Eliza Dillard addressed a crowd gathered at Logan High School’s Little Theater. Dillard gave a brief histories of the formation, establishment and lives of the student and faculty at Logan County’s segregated Aracoma High School. Dillard noted the sense of community felt before the school’s closure in 1962 must return. The answer, Dillard added, was a communal sense of belonging and togetherness.
