The markers would pay tribute to Army officer Charity Adams Early, late nun Dorothy Stang, Springfield Mayor Robert C. Henry and author Virginia Hamilton.

The students were among many ninth graders at the school who researched historic figures and then crafted biographies as part of a class project. They used the biographies to apply for an official state historical marker with the Ohio History Connection, formerly the Ohio Historical Society.
