Earlier this year we asked people to participate in our yearbook project by loaning or donating their yearbooks to be digitized. Thanks to the amazing response of the communities in Smyth County, we have a collection of 89 yearbooks from 1941 to 1977. The schools represented are: Marion High School, Marion Senior High School, Chilhowie High School, Rich Valley High School, Marion Junior High School, Marion College, R. B. Worthy High School, Sugar Grove High School and Blue Ridge Job Corps Center.
This project was funded through the Library Services and Technology Act and by working with the Library of Virginia to coordinate scanning and hosting services. Due to copyright limitations, this portion of the project could only go through 1977. Each year as the copyright expires we will add yearbooks to our SCPL Digital Collection.
If you have a yearbook that is not in this collection, and would like to contribute to the collection call the Marion Library at 783-2323 ext. 231.
