Dr. Marshall is Making His Mark

Dr. Marshall, STMS’ new principal, is making his mark.

Some might say being a Middle School Principal is a tough job, however, while just getting through his first semester,  Dr. Marek Marshall seems to be making it look easy. 

“He has brought structure to our school and he is focused more on the kids than anything,” said  Mrs. Byrd is a 7th-grade ELA teacher.

Dr. Marshall enjoys interacting with students.

Mrs. Hardy-Holmes Wilson, the 7th-grade counselor, agrees that Dr. Marshall has been doing a great job. “He’s putting the students’ learning before anything else,” the counselor said. “But at the same time, he is trying to find new ways for the school to have fun together, and he is an overall great part of the school.”

Before becoming the principal at Saluda Trail, Dr. Marshall  served as an assistant principal at South Pointe High School. Before South Pointe, he was an assistant principal  at Rawlinson Road Middle School. Dr. Marshall was also a former social studies teacher at Dutchman Creek Middle School. 

Dr. Marshall said he has enjoyed serving as principal of STMS so far. “I enjoy having a chance to talk to students about anything that is occurring within the school,” he said. “I want kids to learn and I believe that’s what school should be all about,” Dr. Marshall added.

Dr. Marshall is proud of student achievement at The Trail.

Mrs. Ellison, Saluda Trail’s Media specialist, said Doctor Marshall is very supportive of the needs of the library and that he has provided Saluda Trail with “clear and reliable administration.”

“He’s given us an  opportunity to try different things, and he is so encouraging about the library.”

The new principal, has served Rock Hill schools for over a decade. Before coming to Rock Hill, Dr. Marshall said he even worked in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools.
