MULLINS HIGH HISTORY

MULLINS HIGH HISTORY

In 1923, a new Mullins High School was created under the principalship of Mr. L. B. McCormick, who later served as District Superintendent from 1926 to 1948.  In 1936 and 1937, the school was again updated with the addition of more classrooms and a gymnasium.  By 1937 the high school enrollment had grown to about 350 students and the school became one of the state's first high schools to be accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.  Mullins High School remains South Carolina's oldest continuous member of this prestigious accrediting agency. Following a fire in 1976, they operated from a location on Academy Street, using numerous portable classrooms until a new school could be constructed.  In 1981, the present building was completed on a beautiful 84-acre campus west of Mullins.  Mullins High School now stands as an exemplary monument to a long tradition of educational excellence and to the faithful dedication of educational and community leaders who have repeatedly demonstrated their unyielding belief in the youth of Marion County School District.
