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.

Jesse Hutton ('82) has posted a video on You Tube as a tribute to the Madison High Alumni who have gone on before.

Annual MHS Golf Tournament is a huge success
A fantastic time was had by all at our Annual MHS Golf Tournament this year. We had 58 golfers and 7 additional folks at the Luncheon. The tournament was held at Old Hickory Country Club and the weather was fabulous. Click here for photos from the tournament.

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

The staff and students of Madison High School believed that the purpose of the school was to develop the student for successful personal, social and economic living and that the school should provide enriching experiences so that the pupil would mature in his mental processes, advance in an understanding of and appreciation for his social and cultural heritage and improve in his use of the communicative tools; speaking, reading, writing and listening and grow in the formulation and practice of high moral standards and ethical ideals.
