History of Russell Independent Schools

The Russell School System is the oldest school system in Greenup County. In 1870, Miss Alice Carner realized that there was a need for a school and opened a private school in Russell, KY. Originally, the teaching took place in a recreation house which stood in Carner's Grove, but in 1874, a school building was erected near the junction of Kenwood Drive and Route 23. In July of 1891, voters of Russell laid the foundation work for the present school system.   Read more...   << Close
