Central Library in 2014

Thanks to Librarian Melinda Martin’s hard work, the renovation of the Central Library is nearing completion:




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. I still want to see a catagory for the cheerleaders from each class. This is the one area of Central history which reflects the school spirit , student choice by vote, and an honor from the sophomore class forward. Although the cheerleaders are now chosen by a committee, the early days were different. For a sophomore to try out for cheerleader was thrilling and challenging. After a week of try outs, four girls were chosen to try out before the student body.The applause of the student body was the determiner for the two selected. Since the students made the choice, the Central spirit was perpetuated. Alice Clingan Davis
