Title: THE HISTORY OF STANHOPE ELMORE HIGH SCHOOL


1
THE HISTORY OF STANHOPE ELMORE HIGH SCHOOL
2
Pre-SEHS!
  • Before 1965, the only public schools in the area
    were
  • 1st-9th Graders attended Robinson Springs.
  • 10th -12th graders attended Holtville!
  • Sweetnin Community School (Black Students)
    1st-3rd
  • Sandtown School (Black Students)

3
Traitors!
  • However, if you owned your own transportation,
    you could cross the county line and attend
    PRATTVILLE HIGH SCHOOL!

4
Where Did the School Get Its Name?
  • Mr. Stanhope E. Elmore was born on November 17,
    1891.
  • He worked for the Coca Cola Co until the time of
    his death in 1961.
  • He was a dedicated churchman, philanthropist,
    civic worker and businessman.

5
Coca-Cola Rules!
  • Since Mr. Elmore worked for the Coke company,
    only Coke products can be sold on the campus of
    Stanhope Elmore High School.

6
The Beginning
  • After Mr. Elmores death, his children donated 35
    acres of land to the Elmore Co. Board of
    Education. The land was given to serve the youth
    of the Elmore Co. area.

7
STANHOPE ELMORE HIGH SCHOOL!
  • Our school is named after a representative
    figure.
  • That is the reason that we do not call our school
    just Stanhope.
  • You would not call Jeff Davis High School just
    Jeff High School.
  • You are showing disrespect to Mr. Elmores memory
    by not calling the school by its correct name.

8
Opening Day!
  • SEHS did not open its doors until January of
    1965.
  • From August until January, the students in this
    area had to attend Robinson Springs School.
  • For 5 months, the older children attended RSS
    from 730-1130 and the younger ones attended
    from 1130-300.

9
First Facts
  • The first principal of Stanhope Elmore was Mr.
    Thomas E. Turner.
  • The first class graduated 26 students!
  • We now average around 250 per graduating class.
  • The first school newspaper was called The Mustang
    Roundup!

10
You Better Shape Up!
  • If you got in trouble at school, you received a
    paddling.
  • The boys were sent to the office and whooped by
    the principal.
  • The girls were sent to the gym and paddled by
    either Mrs. Stokes or Mrs. Crosby (Mrs. Crosby is
    currently working at ECTC)

11
Mascot and School Colors
  • The students in a freshman history class decided
    on the school colors and mascot.

12
School Colors
  • Our school colors are cardinal and black.
  • These colors were chosen because the Alabama fans
    out voted the Auburn fans!
  • ROLL TIDE!

13
Mascot
  • Since the 1964 Mustang was such a big hit, the
    students chose a mustang to be our mascot!

14
FOOTBALL FIELD
  • There are conflicting reports on what the first
    field was called. Some say Mustang Field.
    Others say Stanhope Elmore Football Field.
  • However, in the 1980s the field was named Conrad
    B. Henderson Stadium after the long time
    principal, Coach Conrad Henderson.
  • In ______ the stadium was renamed
    Foshee-Henderson Stadium after long time coach,
    Jimmy Foshee.
  • Coach Rick Samsal (Class of 1968) made the first
    touchdown on the SEHS field.

15
Corona Yearbook
  • The term Corona comes from the Latin word meaning
    the best, the highest, or a crown.
  • Therefore, the yearbook, our Corona, represents
    the best of the best at SEHS!

16
Real Food!
  • Here is a picture of a SEHS lunchroom tray!
  • For many years, the students had real plates,
    trays and eating utensils!
  • Fried chicken and French fries were often served!
  • Students sat in chairs and had to place their
    chairs on top of the table before they could
    leave.

17
SEHS TRIVIA
  • When the school was first built, only the 100
    bldg., gym and lunchroom existed.
  • The office was located in room 111 and the
    library was what is now two of the JROTC rooms.
  • Coach Henderson kept his many goats in a pen out
    beside the Ag. Shop!
  • The goats escaped all the time and even stomped
    through graduation exam testing during the 90s!
    The principal had to lure them out of the
    building with Doritos!
