It saddened me yesterday when I received the following message from Class of 1965 classmate and friend, John Ettien:

“Bobby, my Mom passed this week.  She was a Drum Majorette at Central High, Class of 1937.  My brother Jim, sister Loretta and wife Patti are all Central High grads.”

Rosa Jane Verhey Ettien passed from among us, but I expect the Central spirit instilled in her in the late 1930s is with us still.  On behalf of all Central alumni, condolences to John, Jim, Loretta, and Patti.

I also learned today that Charlie Sedman (father is Class of 1941 graduate) is a second generation Centralite and began thinking there are probably many others.

Seems appropriate to capture this information in our efforts to preserve Central history.  So, please comment if you are or know them.
