According to Amqui Station, the first Hillbilly Day was 10 October 1953. "Ladies get out your calico dresses and men get out your overalls because you're going to need them on October the 10th (1953).”
     It was a time when young and old would come out and have a real good day. It was always the 2nd Saturday of October. There was a parade every year with several High School Bands, floats, clowns participating; Fish Pond, Country Store and a cakewalk (are we bringing back Memories yet?). Gallatin Road was shut down. Guys would grow beards and folks would dress-up like Hillbillies. The Carnival was set-up down on Gallatin Road. MHS would elect The Hillbilly Queen and The Attendants.

For those of you who have not seen the Madison High School building in the last 5 years, it has changed.
     The building underwent a 10 million dollar renovation during 2009. The Girls Gym is now the Band Room/Chorus Room (was the Art Room). A new Entrance was constructed on the back of the building and new bleachers were added in the Boys Gym among many other changes.
     The new Wing (at the end of the old West Wing) has been completed. Twelve new Classrooms have been added. The “portables” are being removed.

Jesse Hutton ('82) has posted a video on You Tube as a tribute to the Madison High Alumni who have gone on before.

The Purpose of Madison High School

The staff and students of Madison High School believed that the purpose of the school was to develop the student for successful personal, social and economic living and that the school should provide enriching experiences so that the pupil would mature in his mental processes, advance in an understanding of and appreciation for his social and cultural heritage and improve in his use of the communicative tools; speaking, reading, writing and listening and grow in the formulation and practice of high moral standards and ethical ideals.


ALMA MATER

Standing proudly there before us -
With your glory all around;
Truth and Justice be your watchword,
And may you in Love abound.

CHORUS
Madison High, we Love you dearly;
Proudly do we hail your name.
May your name go on before us,
Into Life's great hall of fame.

Open wide your doors of knowledge
Welcome all who enter here.
gain in wisdom, joy and honor -
Stand for all we hold most dear.

CHORUS
Madison High, we Love you dearly;
Proudly do we hail your name.
May your name go on before us,
Into Life's great hall of fame.

This is the singing of Madison High School Alma Mater at a final assembly program for friends, alumni, faculty, and the Madison Community. The day was Sunday, May 5, 1985. This was the conclusion of a program featuring former school administration and school board officials. The Madison High building was closed and later reopened as a middle school. For all of us that passed through the doors at Madison we hold some special memories. Our neighborhood high school was taken away but will always live in our hearts as a great place to grow up, fun times with friends, and dedicated teachers who really cared.
