A memorable college professor passed away last winter, but his legacy still lives on.
The Marshville Community Center held a memorial spaghetti dinner for John Randolph, who was a professor at  Salem College. He was also the founder of Fort New Salem, which is an Appalachian village. Around 200 people attended the fundraiser to help build a memorial and repair one of the cabins at Fort New Salem. Even Randolph's family was there to support the event.
Randolph's sister, Mary-Etta Randolph, said, "Oh, it's a might bit upsetting for me."
Randolph's other sister, Ruth Randolph, had this to say, "Yet, it's an honor to know that people are paying respect to him, doing something in his honor. He always liked to come down and eat here. This is our regular place to come eat when something's going on important."

The memorial will be unveiled next Saturday at Fort New Salem's Spring Arts Kickoff.
