North Vancouver High School served as the only high school in North Vancouver until the opening of Delbrook. Delbrook High School opened in 1957 with Mr. Siddons as principal.

In the post Baby Boom era of the mid 1970’s, North Vancouver was experiencing the same declining enrollments as most other school districts. A proposal was being seriously discussed to close both North Vancouver and Delbrook High Schools at the end of the 1978-79 school year.

On January 28, 1977, a fire began in a lower-floor workshop and quickly spread upward, destroyed much of Delbrook High School. Delbrook’s students completed the 1977 year at nearby Balmoral Junior Secondary. Delbrook and Balmoral students attended classes in shifts, with one school using the buildings in the mornings and the other in the afternoons.

Rather than rebuild Delbrook, the school board officially closed the school on June 30, 1977. Delbrook students enrolled in their choice of either Carson Graham or Handsworth for the remainder of their high school years..

The Delbrook buildings which were not destroyed in the fire, including the gymnasium and cafeteria, now operate under North Vancouver Parks and Recreation as the Delbrook Community Recreation Centre.

Eagles End Season 2nd in State
The Monitor High basketball Eagles have wound up the season as the second strongest Class B team in the state. They were barely nudged out last Saturday night by West Point High for the championship honor. . . . Saturday night saw the Eagles completely ineffective on their inside work, however, Wallace and Curtis Jackson were almost 100% accurate on their tosses from the outside. But it wasn’t enough and the Eagles had to settle for second place behind West Point, the new champion in Class B ball. The final score in the game was 62-54.

Eagles End Season 2nd in State
The Monitor High basketball Eagles have wound up the season as the second strongest Class B team in the state. They were barely nudged out last Saturday night by West Point High for the championship honor.
Coach Samuel Roberts entered the State tournament in Thomaston last weekend with a fabulous record after the regular season play and the elimination tournies.
Friday night the Eagles came through against Douglasville 55-61 to earn the right to compete in the championship game on Saturday.
Out of Monitor’s 61 points scored, 42 of them were evenly divided between Joe Reliford, John Jackson and Wallace Jackson.
Saturday night saw the Eagles completely ineffective on their inside work, however, Wallace and Curtis Jackson were almost 100% accurate on their tosses from the outside. But it wasn’t enough and the Eagles had to settle for second place behind West Point, the new champion in Class B ball.
The final score in the game was 62-54.
. . .
The Eagles will start their track drills for this spring’s cinder season next Monday. The school this year will again have both boys and girls teams.
. . .
Football practice sessions under the direction of Coach William Witherspoon got underway Monday.
. . .
Baseball will come off a little later this year because of the weather and practice sessions for football.
. . .
The faculties of Monitor High and Ocilla High and Industrial School will play a benefit basketball game at Blue-Gray Shell Tuesday night at 7:30.

Partial History of Schools in Littleton, NC

In 1849, Rev. Dr. William Hooper and his son-in-law, Prof. J. DeBerniere Hooper, opened a short-lived Family School for boys near Littleton.

In 1882, Littleton High School and Business Institute was opened. It lasted for quite a few years. In 1892, it had 5 instructors, 3 male and 2 female teaching 120 male students.

The Central Institute for Young Ladies in Littleton was incorporated in Warren Co. in 1883. In 1884 it had 6 teachers and 125 students.

Branson’s North Carolina Agricultural Almanac for 1890 lists Littleton High School (for boys) under Halifax Co. Schools. (The population of Littleton is listed as 350.)

Littleton High School was listed in the 1893 edition of the American College and Public School Directory.

The 1898 NC Biennial School Report lists Littleton Supplemental School, a one-room school in Halifax Co., but doesn’t list Littleton High School.

In 1907, an act was introduced in the NC Senate to authorize establishing a graded school in Littleton.

The 1909 Dept. of Agriculture list of agricultural schools lists the Central Academy in Littleton. (Is this the Central Institute for Young Ladies chartered in 1883?)

In 1922, Littleton High School in Warren Co. was listed as a “Group 2, Class A” school in the NC “accredited schools” report.

Alumni

There are about 200 Littleton High School alumni on Classmates.com.

Here are some Littleton High School 2008 Reunion photos from LittletonObserver.com.

Alumni Input
[This info was submitted by Taylor Hawkins, whose mother attended Littleton High School. Thanks, Taylor!]

The Littleton High School colors were Navy Blue & White and the mascot was the Blue Jay.

The school song was “Littleton Forever”:
Littleton forever,
Thy name we love;
Pride of our fathers
In this land of ours.
Come and join the chorus,
Proudly we’ll sing
Praises for Littleton,
Now let them begin to ring!…rah, rah, rah!

At one time the county line ran down the middle of the campus. The school building was in Warren County and the gym was in Halifax County. The historic Person’s Ordinary (on NC Historic Register) is on the campus grounds. George Washington spent the night in Person’s Ordinary.

The school building and auditorium are now home to the Lakeland Cultural Arts Center and the Mark E. Taylor Theater (community theater).

R. L. Cousins was a 12-grade school on Malone St. in Douglasville, Georgia. It was opened in 1957 under principal John W. Stewart. (I believe it was a replacement school for the former Hutchinson High School.) The high school portion closed in 1971 and the buildings became Douglas County Junior High School. The next year the school was renamed Stewart Middle School. John W. Stewart remained the principal until 1977.

The Douglas County Museum of History and Art houses some artifacts & memorabilia from R. L. Cousins. The museum is located inside the old courthouse on W. Broad St.

Georgia State Champions
This group of basketball players of the R. L. Cousins Negro school in Douglasville has won the State Class B basketball championship, winning their final victory at the tournament in Waycross. The team had the unusual distinction of playing the entire season without a loss. They breezed through the regular season, the district, regional and state tournaments and were never seriously threatened. Holding the trophy in front is Billy Cook, team trainer, and left to right in front row are Charlie Bowens, Lee Edward Bowens, Melvin Welch, James Jones and Harvey Jones. Back row left to right, are Benny Smith, Floyd Parker, Alton Caldwell, J. C. Smith and Charlie Helton. The team was coached by E. L. Pinkston.

Tift County Training School is mentioned as a participant in the 1948 South Georgia Athletic Association basketball tournament.
Here’s the article from the Atlanta Daily World, Mar. 24, 1948.

Here’s an email from Flickr user GHSBP. Check out her Flickr pages and her websites, they are a wealth of great information.
“Tift County Industrial was the same as Tift County Training. Newspaper reports – especially for segregated schools – sometimes couldn’t keep names straight. The name changed to Wilson in 1957 and I assume that was because the county split Industrial into an elementary and a high school. Industrial retained its name. I’m not sure if Industrial was on the exact same parcel of land as the current J. T. Reddick school or not. Reddick had been a principal of Tift County Industrial when it was an elementary. If not on the same spot, it was very close.

I have a few photos of Wilson on the Flickr account. It’s now known as Matt Wilson Elementary.

I have notes on other schools at my website, http://www.ghsbp.com/gia/index.html

For non-segregated schools, http://www.ghsbp.com/nicknames.html, though some of those may not be accurate. I have a very long-term project started to get information out of state educational directories.”

Fair Street Grabs State Title, 13-7

By PHIL JACKSON
Times Sports Editor

Fair Street’s Tigers — sparked by the explosive clutch running of tiny Gene Carrithers — scored early and late here Friday night to defeat a fine Thomasville team, 13-7 and gather their second consecutive Georgia football championship.

With only three minutes and 40 seconds left on the City Park clock and the score knotted at 7-7, Carrithers cracked over tackle on a crossbuck, bounced off one tackler and fought his way six yards for the winning touchdown.

Tiger end Arthur Moss intercepted a pass to stop the last Thomasville threat with 30 seconds remaining. Fair Street ran out the clock and jubilant players lifted Coach E. L. Cabbell and Carrithers to their shoulders for a victorious ride across the gridiron.

Thomasville’s Douglas High Lions were a tough, spirited eleven that featured the keeper runs and passes of quarterback Charlie Ward and the quickie dashes of halfback Roosevelt Reed, but hulking Clarence Niles, David Camp, Johnny Keith, and William Johnson furnished the defensive knocks for Fair Street when they were needed.

Fair Street jumped off to a quick lead in the first quarter. Fullback Ellis Cantrell set up the score when he returned a punt 20 yards to the Thomasville 19.

On the first play, quarterback Cecil Young lofted a high, floating spiral to Moss who gathered it in over his shoulder in the Lion end zone. Cantrell plunged over for the point and a 7-0 lead.

Thomasville’s offense suddenly came alive midway in the second quarter and the Lions drove 69 yards for the tieing tally. Ward’s keeper cutbacks off tackle were the main thrusts of the push. Reed bucked over from the two. Ward carried for the extra point and the teams went out for the half.

Fair’ Street’s strutting band presented an imaginative Christmas show during intermission that was complete even to a formation of a tree with blinking, colored lights.

Neither team could muster an effective offense in the third quarter and through half of the final period.

But just when it seemed a tie was in the books, the Tigers started their winning drive from their 41 yard line with six minutes remaining.

Carrithers got it underway when he burst through center, cut to the sidelines and sped 32 yards to the Thomasville 27. Cantrell hit for five, Carrithers for six, Clifford Stevens for five and Cantrell for five again to the six.

Little Gene then fired his 135-pound frame through for the big one and Fair Street had its 16th straight victory and the state Class A trophy.

Classes began at Henderson Academy in 1814 and continued until 1839 when the old building was crumbling and there were no funds to repair it. In 1869, legislation was passed incorporating the Henderson High School. All assets belonging to Henderson Seminary were ordered to be turned over to the Trustees of Henderson Public Schools.

A new building at Green & Center Streets was completed in 1870 and school began there in Sept. of 1870. It was a 3-story, brick building with basement. It had 14 classrooms and one assembly room. It was equipped with the latest furniture and slate blackboards. There were 13 graded school teachers and two high school teachers. The top floor was the high school and the other two floors were the graded school.

In 1888, a new building was opened just for the high school grades. Located at the corner of Washington & Adams Streets, the building housed Henderson High School until 1910. In 1910, Henderson High School ceased to exist and the students were moved to the newer Barret Manual Training High School across the street. In 1955, a new high school was opened on South Alves St. to replace BMTHS and was named Henderson City High School.

Henderson County High School opened in 1954 and moved to its current location in 1969. In 1965, Douglas High School was merged into Henderson City High School. In 1970, Holy Name High School closed and the students transferred to either the City or County high schools. In 1976, Henderson City High School was consolidated into Henderson County High School, making Henderson County one of the largest high schools in the country.
