Cox Campus.Cox started with the school system in 1950 and left in 1972, according to his son, Assistant Director of Schools Bobby Cox, “This is a great honor for my dad,” Bobby said. “He put a lot of blood, sweat and tears not only in education, but in this school when it was first City High School and then when it turned into Warren County High School. He coached here, was principal here at the time of consolidation when it was a really difficult job to pull everybody together.
