Last Volume of The Central Digest in Hard-Copy

Chattanooga Central History Archives Team (CCHAT) now believes Volume LXV published in School Year 1980 – 1981 was the last Volume published in hard-copy.  Confirmation from those with knowledge about this will be greatly appreciated.

During our sorting of historical documents in the Library, we found an Issue 1 with September, 1981 date on Page 1 and a September, 1980 date printed on Page 4.  It had Volume LXV on Page 1 as well.  We now believe the September date was in error, an it was Issue 1 for School Year 1980 – 1981.

There is an article on Page 1 about Mr. Jolliffe assuming duties as Assistant Principal.  The Champion 1981 indicates he assumed those duties at the beginning of School Year 1980 – 1981.






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. My issue of #1 from Volume 65 also has the erroneous date on Page 4.

    I graduated in 1981, so I can’t add much about whether this was the last hardcopy edition, as Volume 65 is the last set I bought while at Central.
