About East Rowan HS

East Rowan High School opened in 1959, consolidating Rockwell High School and Granite Quarry High School.  Originally named “East Rowan High School,” the “Senior” was added to the name when Erwin Junior High (now Erwin Middle) was built in 1967.  When the 9th grade returned the "Senior" was dropped in the school once again became "East Rowan High School". Eight principals have served the school:  Guy Swain, Derwood Huneycutt, Joe Lyerly, Boyce Caudle, Clinton LeGette, Harry Starr, and Kelly Sparger, and the current Principal, Mrs. Julia Erdie.  The school has produced six winners of the prestigious Morehead Scholarship at UNC-Chapel Hill.  Dozens of ERHS alumni have returned to their alma mater to teach and/or coach.  The school’s motto is “Lighting the lamp of wisdom through experience.”  The school’s mascot is the Mustang, and our school colors are red, white and blue.
