NEW ALBANY BICENTENNIAL: The history of NAHS

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY —

Some famous actors, sports figures, scientists and politicians have all walked through New Albany’s hallowed halls. Astronomer Edwin Hubble taught at NAHS while Supreme Court Justice Sherman Minton, renowned pro baseball player Billy Herman, golfer Fuzzy Zoeller and television star Josh Dallas attended the school. Since 2007,  NAHS has maintained a Hall of Fame to memorialize some of its grad’s achievements. 

With all the recent renovations to its buildings, the school’s chaotic moves should be well behind it. NAHS isn’t leaving the downtown area anytime soon, a fact that makes Megenity quite happy. 

“It’s relevant that NAHS has stayed in its present location. There were a lot of high schools, like Jeff for instance, in a lot of cities in Indiana that put their high schools out in the suburbia area. And they sort of have gotten away from the downtown schools,” he said. “With that major expansion they had a dozen years ago, I think they’re going to be there for [a] lifetime.”
