A consolidated Camden County High had formed in Woodbine in 1945. A year later, the experiment was over.
Thanks to an increased presence on the Camden board of education by members from Kingsland and St. Marys and some unsigned board minutes and an unlikely quorum, Camden was split. Kingsland and St. Marys split off into their own consolidated high school, South Camden, while Woodbine retained the Camden County name.
And then everyone lived peacefully … for 2.5 years.
