ATHLETICS, EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITES & STUDENT LIFE
Because of the era of existence of Milan High School in Illinois, the school may not have offered interscholastic
athletics for its students. Most “small” high schools did not field athletics until the late 1910s and early 1920s.
However, if there is any evidence of high school sports offered at Milan H.S., we welcome such information.
Likewise, there may have been many other
"extra-curricular" activities were offered as part of the educational plan too. FFA, FHA, GAA, band, chorus, and many other
events probably helped to make the Milan school a special one.
We would like to thank the Rock Island County Historical Society for assisting
us with the information provided on this page for Milan High School. Much of the information comes from a history book titled
Travels in Time by Barbara Scott (1982). Not every small town in Illinois was able to put a comprehensive history of
its boundaries together. The efforts of Ms. Scott in preserving Milan history made it possible for the history of Milan High
School to be uncovered for the next generation.
