I'm not positive but I believe MC Napier closed in 1994 and the new Perry Central high school opened in 1995.
Thank you for your reply. That sounds right. It seems like it was in the mid 1990's when Perry Central High School opened. I was living in Cleveland, Ohio from 1991 to 2003 with my mother after she and my father divorced. I remember that my aunt told me on the phone about a new high school that was being built. I believe it was in Hazard so that would have been Perry Central High School. I moved back to Hazard with my mother in mid 2003 and 2 months before I turned 17. I attended and graduated from Hazard High School like my mother did. My father graduated from M.C. Napier but I don't remember which year that was. He has passed away. We were never close unfortunately. That was about all that I knew about his personal life actually. One of my friend's was curious about when M.C. Napier closed. She was trying to figure out how to get some year books from there for her mother who graduated from there like most her mother's family who are around her age and a little older than her. Thank you again for your reply.
Thank you. Me too. I have a lot of great memories from my high school days. I stayed in touch with most of my friends from those days through social networking sites since most of us have moved out of state since then. I have been back in Kentucky for a little while due to family reasons but Hazard just doesn't feel the same now with so many of my friends and my mother's friends being gone now. I will always cherish the memories though.
