At the top of new Alabama Governor Bob Riley's agenda is getting more resources for public schools.
1909-January 30, The state high school here in Hartselle has now been completed. School will begin in it soon. The building is a modern brick and stone structure, two stories high, with eight rooms, and is convenient in every respect. The building and grounds cost $10,000. It will be known as the Morgan County High School.
1947-January 31, 1947-Unit #2 of the Hartselle Garden Club is sponsoring a contest for the city grammar school. Prizes will be offered to students building the best birdhouses and making the best scrapbooks.
1992-February 1, J. P. Cain will serve as principal of the new junior high school.
1943-February 2, The Hartselle public school PTA met today with Mrs. William H. Stewart, the president, presiding. The members of the organization, on a voice vote, opposed Saturday school.
1931-February 3, In Morgan County at the present time the length of the school term ranges from as few as 60 days to as many as 180 days per year. These inequalities greatly discriminate against children living in poorer communities.
1945-February 4, Morgan County High School has started a drive to raise funds to build a new lunchroom. The cafeteria will be an added building, placed on the campus near the football field.
1943-February 5, Miss Ora Russell is continuing her studies at Florence State College this winter. She is one of Hartselle's most dedicated teachers.
1943-February 6, Courses in pre-flight training are being introduced into the curriculum at Morgan County High School. Many young men are, of course, going directly from MCHS into the armed services.
1930-February 6, University of Alabama student William Bradford (Bill) Huie is now teaching temporarily at MCHS.
