    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Retired University of Kentucky basketball coach Joe B. Hall got his start at the old Shepherdsville High School.

    To honor Hall’s start in what would turn out to be a very successful coaching career, city officials will honor the successor to Adolph Rupp in a special ceremony on Friday, April 16.

    At 3 p.m., the public is invited to attend a ceremony at Shepherdsville City Government Building on Conestoga Parkway.

    Some of Hall’s former players at SHS will attend and share some memories. Others in the community are invited to bring out their stories about Hall.

    Following the ceremony, a procession will lead Hall to Second Street at South Buckman. A new sign naming Second Street in honor of Hall will be unveiled. The road is the home of the former high school.
