Senior Walk - Class Of 2017 Returns To Its Roots
On Friday, May 26, 2017, the Class of 2017 walked the halls of their former elementary schools and their former middle school. Students and their former teachers greeted them with high fives and hugs. This occasion was very nostalgic for the Class of 2017 and their former teachers. It also showed current elementary and middle school students the ultimate goal that they are working to achieve.
Down Central's Corridors - 50 Years Later Was a Huge Success!
On Saturday, May 20, 2017, approximately 140 former and current students, faculty, and community members attended the culminating celebration of Central High School's 50th Anniversary. The event, Down Central's Corridors - 50 Years Later, was the brain child of Jonathan Clarke, President of the Class of 2017.
Jonathan borrowed memorabilia spanning the 50 years. He inventoried it all, and displayed it at the event. Those attending also enjoyed a brief program and light refreshments, took guided tours, poured over annuals and scrapbooks, purchased momentous, and enjoyed time with old friends. Below you can enjoy photos of all the displays and of the event itself.
As the Charger Fight Song says, "Hail to the Purple and the Gold of our Dear Central High School. A song we offer thee. A pledge of service, faith and trust and loyalty. Our Chargers, fighting for you, winning for you until the last. Our boys will score, just you wait and see! We're headed for a victory!"
(Written by Pat Crymes Wright, Class of 1967)

It’s That Time of Year—
FFA Horticulture Program is in Full Bloom at CHS
It is that time of year when thoughts turn to planting flowers and vegetable gardens.
Lyle Currin’s horticulture students at CHS were thinking about it long before now.
Students in the program have raised plants in the green house from seeds and seedlings.
Now they are ready to put in the ground. Stop by and take a look if you get a chance. The green house door is open from 11:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Jonathan Clarke Claims State Championship in Forensics
When someone mentions the word “forensics,” they first assume that you are talking about bones. However, “forensics” is the art and craft of public speaking for many middle and high school students. In this sport, students can compete in one of the following categories: Serious Interpretation, Humorous Interpretation, Poetry, Prose, Impromptu, Extemporaneous, Serious Duo, Humorous Duo, or Storytelling. Forensics has been a big part of Central High School over the years. Senior Jonathan Clarke recently had the pleasure of attending the State Forensics meet held Saturday, March 25, 2017 at Clover Hill High School in Chesterfield. Jonathan made it to the final round, and he placed first in Region 1A for Impromptu speaking. When asked, Jonathan stated, “I am thankful for all of the support these past four years from my peers, teachers, and coaches. I believe this is the greatest accomplishment to cap off a great year at CHS!” Jonathan is the son of Tara Dunbar of Victoria and Jan and Carrie Clarke of Crewe. Mrs. April Hawks, longtime veteran to Lunenburg’s education system, remarked, “I am so proud of all of my students this season. I believe it is a great accomplishment to have a state champion at Central!”.
