Dr. Dan Lunsford shepherded in the merger of city and county schools in 1993, despite much objections initially. His innovations include requiring athletic directors be assistant principals and head coaches, alternative school, Junior ROTC at East and West Henderson, lighting at baseball fields, and a food service warehouse. Supplemental teacher salary was uniform, in his era. He has been president of Mars Hill since 2002. Mars Hill expanded into a full university last August. Lunsford is the most recent superintendent to join the HCEF Hall of Fame.
