Inscription. Originally founded in 1923 as the black "County Training School" at Smyrna, Tennessee. It was moved to McKenzie in 1927, and named "Webb High School" in honor of John L. Webb. With over 1900 alumni, this school, under the leadership of J. L. Seets and T. A. Warford has had a national impact in developing black leadership. In 1965, Webb High School, the only Negro school in Carroll County, merged with McKenzie High School.
