Re-Visit Knifley 2014: A member of historic KGC class
Remembering great educators at Knifley Grade Center, and the words of one teacher who would later become Adair County School Superintendent, that at Knifley, regardless of educational goals, every student was being prepared for life.
Steve Sanders' Story told to CM
At Re-visit Knifley, Saturday afternoon, Steve Sanders, owner of Service Cleaners in Campbellsville, KY, remembered the year the Knifley Grade Center was opened and and the old Knifley Graded and High School was closed.
"A class ahead of me was the first to go to the new school as first graders," he said. "But they started in the second semester; my class was the first to start first grade and finish all eight grades at Knifley Grade Center."
"We had the most wonderful teachers," he said. Mr. Bill Riggins was the principal, he said, and listed the teachers for each class:
He said, Steve Sanders said, "Some of you will complete the 8th grade. Some will complete High School. Some will graduate for college. We're preparing all of you for that. But the most important thing I want you to know is that here, We are preparing all of you for life." Buddies Sanders remembered in that historic class were Billy Joe Wethington, Tery Fair, Paul McWhorter, and Charles Giles. - CM/Ed Waggener
