Welcome to Sumter County Schools

Americus-Sumter High School has named Larry Harold as its new head football coach. Harold comes to ASHS from Central High School in Macon. Americus-Sumter Athletic Director, Coleman Price, introduced Coach Harold to the School Board and the large crowd at Thursday night’s regular board meeting. Price said there were 27 candidates, of which they were able to narrow it down to six and ultimately to one. Harold expressed to the board he was happy to be at Americus-Sumer High School and could not wait to get started. His plans are to impress upon the team when they put on the blue helmet, they are role models and the younger kids are looking up to them. Dr. Torrance Choates and the Sumter School Board members are looking forward to great things happening under the lights this fall.
