    Just a correction. Angier High School consolidated with Lillington High School, Lafayette High School and Buies Creek High School into Harnett Central High School. GO TROJANS!!!!

    You are correct…the colors for AHS were purple and gold. The mascot was a bulldog. I graduated from Angier in 1976. The correction that needs to be made is that the schools consolidated in 1978. “1977 was the last year Angier was officially a high school
