When Mr. Madison Sanders' term of office as superintendent of Haralson County began in 1953, the administration realized the urgent need for better educational opportunities and vocational training in Haralson County. In 1965, a million dollar application was submitted to the state for approval to build a new high school in Haralson County. The school was opened in the fall of 1970. It had 55 courses, along with 615 students, and 25 teachers.
