BLUEFIELD — One of West Virginia’s most successful barristers — H. Marshall Jarrett, director of the executive office for U.S. Attorneys, U.S. Department of Justice, will be honored with induction into the Bluefield High School Hall of Fame during an assembly at 10 a.m. on Tuesday in the BHS Auditorium.
Jarrett, a graduate in the BHS class of 1962, earned his undergraduate degree from West Virginia University, and later his Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the WVU College of Law, and began his career in public service as an assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of West Virginia.
From that humble origin, Jarrett, 68, advanced steadily through the ranks of the U.S. Department of Justice to become one of the DOJ’s most powerful lawyers.
