Murray's New Consolidated High School, 1920

From The Chatsworth Times
September 23, 1920

MURRAY COUNTY CONSOLIDATED
HIGH SCHOOL OPENS
WITH BRIGHT PROSPECTS

Murray County Consolidated High School opened at Spring Place on Monday, September 13th, with flattering prospects. Nearly a hundred pupils were enrolled on the first day, and others have entered until the hundred mark has already been past.

Four teachers, W. F. Huffaker, Miss Frankie Anderson, Miss Agnes Kemp and Miss Mattie Lou Walls, are already kept busy, and at the present rate of increase another will be needed soon.

This school will undoubtedly be a great blessing to Murray county, since it is to supply a long-felt need. It is to be an accredited state high school, and it is the intention of those in authority to make it equal to the best in the state. All high school pupils from this county are admitted free from tuition, and all who have been promoted from the seventh grade are urged to enter at the earliest possible date.

The people of this county are worthy of the best that can be secured, and every citizen should get behind this movement and make this a center for educational thought. Already people from other communities are seeking houses in Spring Place in order to educate their children. It is expected that the present enrollment will be doubled as soon as cotton is picked.

Let us boost this new school and put Murray county in the lead among the educational counties of North Georgia.
