Martha Layne Collins High School is located in Shelbyville, Kentucky. The official name is Martha Layne Collins Hill High School. One of two high schools in the Shelby County Public Schools school district, it opened in August 2010. Ralph Anthony Hatchell has been selected as the first principal.[1][2]
