What happened to the Lost Year at Knifley High School?

Where were Knifley high school student in school year 1952-1953?
Gerald Doss, former Pellytonian but late of Columbia, KY is concerned about an apparently lost year at Knifley High School.

He noticed that carried a photo of the KHS class of 1952 as being the last KHS graduating class.

"What about 1953?" he asks. "Adair County High didn't start until the fall of 1953, so what happened to the Knifley Class of 1953?"

He wonders if that class attended Columbia High School. "There wouldn't have been that many--maybe 12-15 from Knifley, and they might have gotten lost in the big town school."

But, on second thought, he retracted the idea. "No," he said, "Knifley kids are too smart, too good looking, to have been overlooked, anywhere even one of them would have appeared."

Can anybody help? It's worrying Gerald Doss, and now I can't sleep with the burden of the Mystery of the Lost Year at Knifley High School? -Ed Waggener.
