Carthage High School
Colors: Green & White
We’re not sure when Carthage High School was founded.
– We do know that the late N.C. State Senator Curtis Marley Muse graduated from Carthage High School in 1895. Mississippi State Senator Hugh McQueen Street attended Carthage High School in 1847 & 1848, but we’re not sure which Carthage. He grew up in Moore County, NC, but then moved to Mississippi. There is also a Carthage High School in Carthage, Mississippi.
Carthage High School closed after the 1963-64 school year when Farm Life High School, Carthage High School, Vass High School and Cameron High School were consolidated into the new Union Pines High School.
