    Silver Grove to Close

    Will merge with Campbell County schools per multiple sources. SG currently has something like 163 students in all grades.

    No one should be surprised by this. Long overdue.

    It's sad to see any school district close. So much history, etc, and these small independent districts mean so much to the small towns.

    This seems to come up every year, yet they remain open every year.

    Yeah, I've heard the same thing, but I don't think it happens until the 2020 year.

    Looks like this could be for real though this time. The Silver Grove Board of Education has voted in favor of the merger, and is now just waiting on Campbell County to accept. There seem to be a few sticky points left concerning Silver Grove teachers and board members.

    When my better half’s family moved from Greenup County in the mid 60’s (her dad worked for C&O) they had the choice of moving to Silver Grove Or Maysville...

    It is a good one. There is a school in Illinois by the name of Cobden Appleknockers.

    It's hard to top Thad Matta's Alma Matter: Hoopeston Cornjerkers, also in Illinois.
