Roy L. Straight was a retired Huntington High School principal. He died Jan. 6, 1986, in St. Cloud, Fla. Straight was also a Marshall University assistant football coach from 1937 to 1949. A Mannington, W.Va., native, Straight began his teaching career in Harrison County in 1935 before coaching at Marshall. After a one year coaching sting at the University of North Carolina, he returned to Huntington and started his teaching career at Huntington East High School. From 1951 to 1953, he taught at Enslow Junior High School and returned the following school year to Huntington East High School. A year later, he became principal at West Junior High School and served there until his appointment at HHS in 1967. Straight, a World War II Navy veteran, also served as recreation director of the Huntington Park System during the summer of 1950. Photo is from 1950.
