The plaza was designed and donated by East Fairmont alumnus Clyde Dodd, and was constructed by Valley General Contracting of Fairmont. The dedication featured as guest speaker Mr. Hershel "Woody" Williams - a Marion County native and recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor which he received for his actions on the island of Iwo Jima in 1945 during World War Two.

During his visit to East Fairmont, Mr. Williams spoke to the East Fairmont student body about his experiences in life and about the important responsibilities facing the students. Following the dedication and presentation to the students, Mr. Williams was joined by other guests at a reception in the East Fairmont Library.

Friday night, Mr. Williams attended the East Fairmont / North Marion football game where he was recognized along with Mr. Dodd for their contributions at East Fairmont. The Air Force J.R.O.T.C. of East Fairmont, under the leadership Major Michael Morrison and Technical Sergeant David Taylor, presented the American flag during pre-game ceremonies.

The game was also Homecoming for East Fairmont and members of the Homecoming Court took the field during halftime. East Fairmont handed the winless Huskies their fifth defeat of the season by a score of 44-14. The Bees evened their record to 3-3 and will next be in action on October 8th when they visit Lewis County.
