Chattanooga Central History Archives Team (CCHAT) Discovers Central Book of Honor

The Lookout Chapter of the National Honor Society of 1933 started manually publishing this Book of Honor “to trace the achievements of past students of Central since its organization in 1907.” Their goal was for future members of the Society to continue researching classes prior to 1933 and record honors recipients of future classes, thus inspiring students to attain more and still greater honors for Alma Mater.

Dedication of Book of Honor read: To the past students of Central, who by their zeal and industry have won honors for Alma Mater, and to students of the future, whom we challenge to the fullest and best use of their mental endowment and God-given talents that through their character, scholarship, leadership, and service they may richly live and devotedly serve Alma Mater, we the Lookout Chapter of the National Honor Society dedicate this Book of Honor.  Subsequent National Honor Society Classes continued this tradition through 1967.
