MHSAA Hosts Alumni Association Share Group Meeting

Madison High School hosted the semiannual Share Group meeting on April 14, 2016. Six High School associations were represented from the Nashville area and included DuPont, East, Meigs, Goodlettsville, Madison and Antioch. Everyone toured the Alumni area and Tim Watrous gave a talk about MHS.
    The Share Group is made up of several High School Alumni Associations that get together twice a year and talk about what is going on with their Association. The Share Group was started 10 years ago by Wilson Stewart of DuPont.

We had a beautiful day for our 2015 All Class Reunion. This year, we changed things up a bit. We had the School open from 10:00 to 2:00 and then went to Madison (Amqui ) Station. We didn’t have as many folks as in the past, but we all had a good time.
     If you missed this year, plans are already in the works for next year's reunion which will be on the second Saturday in October. See Reunion pictures.


Congratulations to the recipients of the Scholarships awarded by MHSAA this year. Click here to see the full list.
     Each person was awarded $1,000 to go toward their 1st year of College. The Madison High School Alumni Association has awarded $24,000 to well deserving students over the last 8 years. We also thank everyone for their support and contributions and ask everyone to continue to support the Scholarship Program.


According to Amqui Station, the first Hillbilly Day was 10 October 1953. "Ladies get out your calico dresses and men get out your overalls because you're going to need them on October the 10th (1953).”
     It was a time when young and old would come out and have a real good day. It was always the 2nd Saturday of October. There was a parade every year with several High School Bands, floats, clowns participating; Fish Pond, Country Store and a cakewalk (are we bringing back Memories yet?). Gallatin Road was shut down. Guys would grow beards and folks would dress-up like Hillbillies. The Carnival was set-up down on Gallatin Road. MHS would elect The Hillbilly Queen and The Attendants.

For those of you who have not seen the Madison High School building in the last 5 years, it has changed.
     The building underwent a 10 million dollar renovation during 2009. The Girls Gym is now the Band Room/Chorus Room (was the Art Room). A new Entrance was constructed on the back of the building and new bleachers were added in the Boys Gym among many other changes.
     The new Wing (at the end of the old West Wing) has been completed. Twelve new Classrooms have been added. The “portables” are being removed.

The Purpose of Madison High School
