LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --Lou Conkling is one of those guys with a lot of stories. Most of them are about his grade school, the days when he walked the halls of St. Agnes school.
"So many stories, so many memories, some that I should never tell on camera," he said.
The classrooms, football field, and the people there helped make him who he is today.
"I started school here over 50 years ago, so it's been a part of my life for all of it," Conkling explained.
He will get a chance to revisit some of the people known only as faces in photos by students at St. Agnes.
"It's just a chance for people to celebrate, and be grateful for this great school, and grateful for the community we have here at St. Agnes," PTO President, Tamra Koshewa said.
No, it's not a class reunion, it's a celebration of the school turning 100. First they'll celebrate at the Galt House tonight, then at an open house at the school tomorrow. It's sure to give people like Conkling more stories to tell for the next 100 years.
If you want to go to the celebration at the Galt House, you can. It's $50, and there are still a limited number of tickets available.
