History of Knifley Community, School: Amanda Greer's thoughts
pen their thoughts on the closing of KGC
"Knifley is like a big house filled with family"
From barefeet to Nike Shocks, Knifley School has come a long way.
In fact, it has been in session since 1904: 102 years!
Unfortunately, this long-lasting, fun-filled school is sadly coming to an end.
My classmates and I will be the last graduating class from this memorable school. It is an honor and it is upsetting, all at the same time.
This is my 9th year at Knifley, and what a wonderful nine years it has been.
I've made so many friends, I've learned how to deal with problems, Knifley is where I learned to deal with problems, and I grew up here.
Knifley is like a big house filled with family. The teachers are the moms, teaching us what's right and wrong, and the students are my brothers and sisters.
I'm sad to sad that I will be the last generation of the Greer family to have the privilege of attending Knifley>
I think shutting Knifley down is the worst mistake anyone could ever make, but I guess a good thing can't last forever. I think if it last 102 years, it can last another 102 years.
I had my first fight here, my first friend; I am going to be so sad to leave.
I am going to high school next year, but I wanted my children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to go here, too.
I believe good things should last forever.
