Our Story

In September of 1994 a group of Hopkins High School graduates reunited to organize the Hopkins High School Alumni Foundation. What is remarkable about this is that Hopkins High School was merged into Lower Richland High School in 1971, so the group passionately clings to the memories of the alma mater that once flourished on the grounds of the Hopkins Middle School. From 1954 until 1971, the high school became a source of pride in the Lower Richland community under the leadership of principal Ulysses R. Barber, a Richland One Hall of Fame honoree. Former State Representative Joe. E. Brown built upon that tradition of excellence at the school from 1959 to 1971 when it began the transformation into a junior high then later a middle school.
