In 1974 men with a visionary zeal of Rottigawad and its surrounding villages come together with common ideas and goals towards rural development under the dynamic leadership of Late Sri. G.S.Patil. They were inspired in the belief that education was the only means to chart a progressive future. In fact the background to this inspiration lay in the non availability of education facilities in and around the villages of Rottigawad (Tq. Kundgol Dist Dharwad)and lack of higher education facilities in smaller township of Kundgol. This Group education committee was established in 1974 at Rottigawad under the chairmanship of Sri. G.S.Patil. Immediately they set themselves to the task of realizing the dream as a concrete high school. Soon Shri. G. K. Hiregouder High school came in to existence on the precious land donated by Sri. V.G. Hiregoudar in memory of his father. Thereafter in 1982 the high school was converted into Composite Junior College.
