Graduated from Central in 1965. Had the honor of being Mr. Central 1965. Started on the Central Basketball Team for three years and was a member of the Track Team in my senior year. Shared command with Bryant Millsaps of the Central JROTC unit in my senior year. Other activites at Central are documented in the 1963 -1965 Champions. Received an athletic scholarship and played Division I College Basketball for four years. When I graduated from Auburn in 1969, I was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the Army Adjutant General Corps and served 25 years on active duty, retiring in 1994. Some of the military awards I earned include the Legion of Merit, one Meritorious Service Medal for Achievement, six Meritorious Service Medals for Service, Joint Service Medal for Achievement, two Army Commendations Medals, and Viet Nam Service Medal. After retirement in 1994, I became a Real Estate Broker until my second retirement in 2010. I am passionate about Central History and am pleased to be Administrator of this Blog/Site.

One thought on “Central Historical Marker Dedicated August 4, 2012

  1. I thought it was a beautiful Ceremony short and to the point. I am,also, very appreciative of the hard work the project Team, that put this program together, went through. They did an outstanding job. And I am very appreciative of, finally, having a decent plaque/marker recognizing the Central ancestry.
    It was all so exciting to see some of our (Central) elite participate as shown in the pictures on this web site.
