V.VVVV..V. News Outlook . .- -vv~ vwvvvvwv-vv June 24, 2021 5 The Old Schools By Kathleen Perry Many, many years ago, some time following The Stone Age, I began my formal education. It was in the mid nineteen- forties that I made my way out of the one-mile hollow, on foot, with my brothers and sister and caught the school bus down Beaver to be awestruck at the sight of my first school building. The huge four room stone school house. . .Cold Cave School was the biggest building I had ever seen! It was here that I learned the Three R’s, plus much, much more. Doors were opened to me that I had no idea even existed. Learning to read was the beginning of a miraculous never-ending trip, that I’m still enjoying. In addition to the classes in Grade School, I met many wonderful teachers and classmates. Menifee Housing Associates Section 8 Located at 36 Motley Ct. F renchburg, Ky. 40322 (606)768-3672 IE of Owingsville OVER TH This was an education in itself! Cold Cave School, and other Rural Menifee County schools taught First through Seventh grades, sending their Eighth graders, by school bus, on to Frenchburg where magnificent huge brick buildings provided classrooms for Grades One through Twelve. This school in Frenchburg was a chari- table outreach of The Presbyterian Church, and included a grade school building, a high school building, a student dormi- tory, a teacher’s apartment building, a gymnasium, a Shop building. And all on a setting of acres of green grass! To top off the French- burg School complex was a hospital! Jane Cook Hos— pital with Nurse’s Housing next door! I completed 8th, 9th and 10th grades here but trouble was brewing and before we knew it, the Frenchburg School com- plex was no longer in op- eratjon! In my junior year, students were going to' classes in different build- ings and locations in town. I had one class in a former pool room, another class in the large living room of a private residence, .u nou' ' ur- NOW HIRING!

While all this was going on, The Frenchburg School was OUT...and we were becoming The Me- nifee County School Sys- tem ....at a new location with a new school building! The students who were Seniors the year I was a Junior, held their graduation ceremonies outside on the grounds of the new school building which would be completed the following year. A few months later in September 1958, our class of 36 young men and women came into French- burg from our homes on the ridges, up the hollows, and scattered around Me- nifee County, and walked the halls of the newly con- structed Menifee County High School as the first class that would gradu- ate actually from the new building! It was a glorious year for us! We were Seniors, and in a new building where the paint was barely dry and the windows glis- tened with newness! Af- ter coming from a year of classes scattered all over town, we appreciated this new school building! There’s more! Al- though it was never put into words, we all learned that rank does have its’ privileges! We were Se- niors and for that we were respected and looked up to.
