History

HISTORY OF CONNER HIGH SCHOOL

Conner High School opened its doors for the first time on October 15, 1970 with less than 600 students in grades 10 - 12. It was built as a result of the overcrowded conditions at Boone County High School. The land for the new school was donated by the Conner family, and it was decided that the school would be named in remembrance of this generous donation.

Construction problems delayed its opening , and school started with two classes and two teachers in one classroom at Conner Junior High School. Since the athletic facilities were not finished, football and basketball games were played at Boone County High School.

Paul Hogan was selected to be the principal, Hilliard Collins the Assistant Principal, Don Bornhorst was the guidance counselor and Carlton Anderson was the athletic director. Jerry Risch served as the first head football coach and Bill Warfield as the head basketball coach. The athletic season highlight for that year was winning the 33rd district basketball tournament. Among the members of the first coaching staff was Wayne Badida, who continues to direct a very fine wrestling program.

Since those 136 students graduated in the first class of 1971, over 6000 student have gone through the graduation ceremonies. These graduates have made their mark in society. Many have continued their education in the finest colleges and universities in the nation. Conner alumni represent a wide range of professions and occupations.

Conner High has established itself as a very fine educational institution. The tradition of pride, honor, and integrity, which had begun in 1970, has grown and continues in the classrooms and on the athletic courts and fields.

Today, with an enrollment over 1300, a comprehensive, fully accredited high school curriculum, extra curricular and athletic programs are offered.

Conner features an outstanding faculty, all of whom are certified in their fields. The faculty has one of the highest percentages of advanced degrees of any high school in the entire Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati area.

Conner High School has achieved much and served well. It will continue to serve with distinction in turning out fine, dedicated, productive young citizens for many years to come.
