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.

Madison High School 5th Annual Golf Tournament

We had a great day for our 5th Annual MHS Golf Tournament at Hermitage Golf Course. We had 43 Alumni and friends and 5 additional folks for the Lunch-On. Jamie Adams from Madison Middle School made a talk about the Middle School. The Tournament and Lunch-On raised $1,200.00 for the MHSAA Scholarship Fund.

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.
