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.
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!

The Marbury Alumni Association teamed with Marbury High School to help finance these banners. They hang from the ceiling in the School halls so students can see them many times a day. We believe in helping the School anyway possible to aid these students.
