In late 1994, former Calhoun County High School teacher Dr. Corkin Cherubini made national headlines when, as district superintendent, he ended district practices the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights found to be racially biased, including tracking and segregated cheerleading squads.
The school's sports teams, known as the Calhoun County Cougars, compete in GHSA Class A Region 1, Sub-Region A. Teams are fielded in baseball, basketball, cheerleading, football, softball, and track.
