Dr. Edley attended Bramwell's Bluestone High School when it was a wooden frame building, located along the road between Freeman and Bramwell, WV. That orignal two story building housed both elementary and secondary classes. As a 1943 graduate of Bluestone High School Dr. Edley lends his support to those who strive to make the Bluestone High School Building a restored historical site. His success exemplifies the education successes of this Historic Afro-American School. The old Bluestone High School remains is often referred to as a "hallmark of the Afro-American educational system."
