School history

Hudson Middle School, named for Berry Garner Hudson, opened its doors for the first time on August 21st, 1992. Ms. Sara Jane Johnson, Hudson's inaugural principal, chose our school colors and the mascot. The faculty and staff who opened Hudson's doors spent their first in-service in temporary quarters. They also spent the final days leading up to the first day of school helping maintenance crews to hang chalkboards and put furniture together. Student enrollment that first year was low, with just over 600 students in attendance. This allowed the entire 8th grade class to have their names posted on the back of a commemorative t-shirt, the brainchild of assistant principal Charles Rose. The faces and names have changed throughout the years, but the honor and pride remains the same at Hudson Middle School.

Soar Hawks Soar!
