Markham Field

  • On August 31, 2012, Mill Creek Community Stadium was officially renamed Markham Field in honor of Dr. Jim Markham, the original principal of Mill Creek High School. Dr. Markham served as principal from 2004 until his retirement in 2012 and was loved by the faculty and students alike. Even after retiring he was a frequent visitor to Mill reek and it was not uncommon to see him on the sideline on Friday night. Dr. Markham passed away on February 23, 2019, but he left behind a legacy unmatched in Gwinnett County.
