Marihart received his bachelor's degree from the UNIVERSITY OF DUBUQUE and master's from Iowa State Teachers' College (later University of Northern Iowa) with a thesis on the history of adult education in Dubuque. In 1926 he began his career in education as a teacher and basketball coach at Nodaway, Iowa. His experience in adult education began in the early 1930s working with training programs for the Virginia Railway Company in West Virginia.
In addition to his work in adult education, Marihart served locally as a playground director for the Dubuque Recreation Department; agent-at-large for 4-H Clubs; president of the Iowa Industrial Education Association and the Dubuque Kiwanis Club; and treasurer of the Dubuque Safety Council.
In recognition of his work in adult education, he received the Laureate Citation, an award presented nationally only once or twice, from Epsilon Pi Tau, professional honorary fraternity in industrial arts and industrial vocational education.
