Built in 1985, the school is named for former Carrollton-Farmers Branch School Board President Charles Blalack. Blalack, also a former R.L. Turner football announcer, served on the Board for 12 years, from 1960 until 1972, and as its chairman from 1968 to 1972. The school’s library is named in honor of Blalack’s wife, Margueritte, because of her faithful support of the school. Blalack’s son, Mike, also served as a member of the school board from 1982 until 1988.
