Old South High Should Have Been Torn Down in 2002

This story in the News Sentinel is about 10 years late. When I was on the School Board (circa late 2001 early 2002) the issue of Old South High first came to our attention. That was before the County Commission took the issue and conducted a competitive bid. I said then that there was NO viable re-use option for Old South High, that it was a hindrance to the Sarah Simpson Educational and Training Center. I advocated then to tear it down. I made won friends and influenced Kim Trent and Knox Heritage with that position. But, as time has passed and the inevitable has become reality. I was right.
