Where Everybody Knows Your Name - January 25, 2019

Q: Located in Lane County, this 1-A high school has the smallest enrollment in the state. What's the name of the western Kansas high school with just 14 students enrolled this year (2018-2019)? 

A: Healy High School (in Healy, Kansas)

The high school in Healy, Kansas, is likely one of those places where everybody knows your name. Or at least they should. According to the Kansas State High School Activities Association, the western Kansas high school had just 14 students enrolled at the start of the 2018-2019 school year. The Lane County community offers a full K-12 education and, obviously, small class sizes. The high school school partners with Ransom, Kansas, to form an eight-man football team, but hasn't always had enough players to field a team. The Eagles had to end their boys and girls basketball teams. Healy may be a small town with a small high school, but it has lots of school and community pride.

Healy is the hometown of Harold Ensley, the late radio and TV broadcast personality best known for his long-running TV program The Sportsman's Friend. The nationally-syndicated show was one of the first to feature hunting and fishing. Ensley died in 2005, but his show ran for 48 years (as reported by NPR News).
