How Did McCord Middle School Get Its Name?
Thousands of lives have been significantly touched and influenced by the foresight, the determination, the strength of character, and the devotion which Harold C. McCord has brought to the Worthington City Schools. Serving as superintendent since January 1938, Mr. McCord faces retirement with the enthusiasm and confidence that have won him countless friends and admirers during a 45-year career of distinguished public and professional service.
The road to Worthington's superintendency began for Harold C. McCord in the small farm community of Ashville, Ohio. Following graduation from the town high school in 1922, he attended Ohio University in Athens and received a bachelor 's degree and teaching in 1926. A fortunate day for the education profession!
He had teaching assignments in the small Ohio towns of Millersport, Batesville, Carey, and Salem. McCord began teaching and coaching duties at Worthington High School in 1930. He taught ''just about everything'' and coached ''everything'' including the first W.H.S. team to win a state championship.
After serving as high school principal from 1935 to 1937, Mr. McCord stepped into the top position of leadership he has held for the past 35 years. Few men have witnessed the phenomenal growth and progress of a school system that Worthington's superintendent has seen since 1938. Education in general and Worthington in particular are grateful and deeply indebted to Harold C. McCord for the integrity and optimism which have dominated some 13,000 days of his leadership.
Student Drop Off/Pick Up
Please be careful if you are dropping off and/or pick up your student at McCord. We have about 50 students who ride their bicycles to school daily, many who ride this route from Worthington Hills to McCord. I have witnessed our students cutting across the parking lot to get to the sidewalk and around to the front of our building to the bike racks.
- Please keep an eye out for our students biking & walking in these areas.
- Please watch your speed in the parking lot.
