Stephens High School
In 1929, a school building was dedicated that would become Stephens School. The school, first through 12th grades, served local African-American students for nearly 40 years until its merger with Calhoun City Schools in 1966.
Tonight we recognize the athletes, coaches and administrators from Stephens High School, which produced some of the most legendary basketball teams, athletes and coaches in Calhoun-Gordon County history.Both the men’s and women’s basketball teams claimed multiple state and district championships. Records indicated the Boy’s teams won as many as state championships and the women’s teams won 5 championships, respectively. The track and field teams also produced many great athletes. The Calhoun-Gordon County community is fortunate to still have so many influences and leaders born out of Stephens’ High School. Many former students and athletes credit Principal Dr. Betty Smith with her leadership and continued influence on their lives.The Calhoun-Gordon County Sports Hall of Fame is proud of its current inductees associated with Stephens High School; Pete Garigan, Maude Chattam and Zeke McDaniel.
We are pleased to recognize the athletes, coaches and administrators from Stephens High School.
