Neshoba Central High

The school is located at 1125 Golf Course Road, south of Highway 16 East. Neshoba Central School was built in 1963 to serve the white students who lived in the county. Students from the Stallo Community who first attended an all-white school, through the “Freedom of Choice Plan,”were Earlean Sherrod Triplett, Mavis Moore Carter, Frank Jimmerson, Wesley Moore, and Thad Holmes. In January 1970, all black students living in the county were sent to Neshoba Central School from Carver School. Neshoba Central is the only county public school.
