History of Haggard
Haggard Middle School was named after pioneer livestock dealer Clinton S. Haggard. Born in Kentucky in 1838, he came to Texas at the age of eighteen and married Nannie Kate Lunsford in 1859. Together they had nine children. Several of their children were educated at the Three-H Academy, which was constructed on Haggard property.
Mr. Haggard had vast land holdings and invested in stock, horses, and mules. He fought during the Civil War. Haggard himself was one of the backers of the Add-Ran College, which is now Texas Christian University. Some of his descendants have also served on the PISD board.
Haggard Middle School was completed in 1974 at a cost of $1.9 million with two additions, each in 1978 and 1995.
