CHARLESTON, W.Va. A cornerstone of Huntington came to Charleston on Wednesday, turning the marble Capitol rotunda kelly green for Marshall Day at the Capitol.
Representatives from about 40 organizations within Marshall University filled the rotunda with booths detailing the work they do, from the Student Government Association to the Robert C. Byrd Institute, complete with a functioning 3-D printer.
It was MU President Jerome Gilbert’s first time attending since taking the lead two years ago, and he said it was an uplifting experience to see Marshall green everywhere.
“We are a comprehensive university and making contributions to the state in many different ways through our outreach, research and ways we reach out to the community,” Gilbert said.
