Margaret Carney shares 1948 Knifley High Keepsake photos
Two photos accompany this article
By Ed Waggener
Margaret Carney has submitted two priceless photos full of wonderful memories of Knifley High School to share to readers of ColumbiaMagazine.com.
One is of the senior class trip to My Old Kentucky home in Bardstown, KY.
The other is of the Knifley High School seniors in their caps and gowns on the steps of the school.
The class included Kathleen Arnold, Margaret Feese, Hilda Chelf, Earnestine Corbin, Dorothy Eastridge, Maudie Feese, Ramona Grant, Lois Jones, Victoria Martin, Eugene Mings, Eva Overstreet, Kenneth Sanders. There may have been at least one more student whose name Margaret Carney did not recall.
The late John Dunbar, who was later Superintendent of Adair County Schools, was a teacher. His wife, Mary Dunbar, accompanied the class on the trip to Bardstown.
Only four more classes graduated from Knifley High School after this one. In 1953, Knifley High School was consolidated with Breeding High School and Columbia High School to create Adair County High School, which originally was in the building now occupied by Adair County Middle School.
And, 58 years later, in 2006, the last classes at Knifley Grade Center were over, when the grade school, too, was consolidated as part of Adair County Elementary School in Columbia.
Thanks to Margaret Carney for sharing these remarkable photos with CM readers.
