Fern Creek High School celebrates 100 years with highway marker dedication
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Louisville’s first and oldest county school celebrated 100 years with a special dedication ceremony on Monday.
Fern Creek High School first opened its doors in 1923 just outside the city limits of the old City of Louisville, enrolling a total of 25 students in both freshman and sophomore classes.
On Monday, Fern Creek High School staff, alumni, students and more gathered to watch a new highway marker dedicated in the school’s honor.
