Memorial Bench Planned for Titus
The Valley High School Class of 2003 is continuing with plans to install a memorial bench, in honor of the late Shelby Titus, on courthouse grounds. On Oct. 24 the Wetzel County Commission approved the placement of the bench. The bench will be placed at the Wetzel County Courthouse, at the left entrance by the tax office. Titus had 31 years of service with the Wetzel County Sheriff’s Tax Office. Titus’ daughter, Jessica Titus Frye, is a member of the VHS Class of 2003.
Since the Oct. 24 approval, Frye’s classmates have requested donations to help with the memorial bench endeavor. Donations can be dropped off at the Wetzel County Sheriff’s Tax Office or the Wetzel County Clerk’s Office.
Groundbreaking is expected for spring.
The bench’s colors – black bench, with yellow lettering – is significant as Titus graduated from Valley High School. Also, the sheriff’s department’s colors are black and yellow.
