May the hills rise up to meet you,  May the wind be e're behind you,
And May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

The Red, the White and the Blue

SO WHAT PROMPTED GEORGE WYTHE TO ADOPT A THREE-TIERED SCHOOL COLOR STANDARD?
Some may say that we loved God and Country and that our patriotic roots spurred us to make such a decision.

IN FACT,  PATRIOTISM DID NOT ENTER INTO THE DECISION AT ALL!
Since the "NEW" George Wythe High School was a conglomerate of former John Marshall (Blue and White) and Thomas Jefferson
 (Red and White) students, the "School Colors" were so chosen to recognize and respect both schools' roots in our formation.
 
"AND NOW YOU KNOW THE REST OF THE STORY" !


Forward to the 1963 Chancellor

Forwarding Pages from 1963 Chancellor Yearbook

There is a new profile in Richmond. It is the intangible silhouette of the spirit of George Wythe High School. After two years of shifting about like a sleepy puppy, the BULLDOGS are beginning to settle down. Within every Chancellor, there is a quiet dignity and a proud satisfaction that comes only from working and sharing in a common goal. Often this spirit is a hearty yell. At other times it is the gladness in our hearts that we are Americans when the cadets play the national anthem. Spirit is the efficient hum of activity that is the integral part of every organization. Even a snowball battle in the parking lot and a classroom anachronism with the ensuing laugh are part of spirit.

FOR THE SOUL OF SPIRIT IS UNDERSTANDING, THE STRUCTURE OF SPIRIT IS TEAMWORK, THE ESSENCE OF SPIRIT IS PARTICIPATION,
THE PULSE OF SPIRIT IS UNITY, AND THE RESULT OF SPIRIT IS SUPPORT. 

Thus, each Chancellor contributes to the unique personality, George Wythe High School.

MEMORIES
Please visit our MEMORABILIA Page to see pictures (in addition to pictures presented below), keepsakes and other class and personal artifacts including communications, recent and past corrrespondence, excerpts from school publications, records from past and present events and/or almost any other item(s) relative to our present and past history and relationships...Thanks to all of our contributors! Every possible effort will be made to acknowledge those who have contributed to the success of this effort.

One of our most creative and entertaining resources for memorabilia, truly from the heart, has been indirectly contributed by Marty Gochenour (Piazza) via email. Marty (as her friends know her) graduated as 1 of 13 "honor students" from the Class of 1963. Marty's enthusiasm, her detailed accountings of memories from GWHS, and her humor have inspired a Marty's Memories page to share some of her thoughts and history, both past and present, with everyone. 
Please enjoy Marty's Memories as much as we have enjoyed them.
