History of HMS

The Reverend Otis L. Hairston Sr. was born on April 28, 1918, in Greensboro, North Carolina. He graduated from Dudley High School and then attended Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism in 1941. In 1958, he moved to Greensboro, where he succeeded his father, the Reverend J. T. Hairston, as pastor of Shiloh Baptist Church. Hairston’s other honors include the Peacemaker Award, the Distinguished Service Award from the North Carolina Council of Churches, and the NAACP “Man of the Year Award.” In 2001, a new middle school in southeast Greensboro was posthumously named in his honor. Reverend Hairston died on July 18, 2000 at the age of 82.
