The Champion 1958

The Champion 1958 replaced with high-resolution version:



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. Hi Bob,

    You’re doing a superb and noteworthy project that will be enjoyed literally by thousands.

    As from _*Class of 1957*_ (the 50th Graduating Class w/Bill Penny as sponsor) we’re anxiously waiting for the CHAMPION of 1957.

    Best Regards,

    1. Your comment is greatly appreciated by the entire Central History Archives Team. It also inspires me to work on The Champion 1957 tomorrow. A couple of weeks ago I brought back over 10,000 photo files of The Champions and The Digests to keep me busy.
