Each town in Burt county had its own public high school for many years. Some various sources give the town of Decatur establishing the first high school in 1875. The last town to establish a high school was Lyons in 1886.
The situation maintained status quo until 1969 when several communities joined together.
An attempt will be made to find Burt county graduates prior to the year 1969. There will likely be years not listed, therefore not found.
