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.
