Central on Dodds Avenue

Very few photos capture the interior better than this one.



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.

  1. There is nothing like an original. Its too bad we only have a few pictures, but we have our memories.

  2. Excellent pictures! It is hard for me to remember the details of the inside of Central and these pictures sure help. I hope more and more pictures of the inside show up. I remember walking the halls but draw a blank when people talk detail.

  3. Look at the number of seats there were in the auditorium. And they were all filled, plus standing room. A lot of noise and good times.
