Thanks to Gary Thomas class of ’53 for getting us started on the digitization of Central’s yearbooks. He provided and contributed for three of the yearbooks, including the 1911 yearbook,
Ya’ll surely are envolved in a GREAT project and this 1946-1950 band member thanks you.
Ann, the 46 – 50 Champions are in the works–tedious and time-consuming effort. We will get to them.
It is great to see all the activity, looking forward to the completion of 52′ yearbook. Good luck and blessings to all
Bob, will make another trip back to Chattanooga this fall to shoot the 50s, 60s, and 70s.
Looking at the old yearbooks bring back old times. Someone did a lot of work to scan these yearbook. Again great job.
Larry Shelley class of 1966
Larry, Bob Johnson here doing some of the work from my home in Puyallup, WA. Got a request today for a photo of you–not from the FBI or anything like that. Someone thinks you were a pretty goo quarterback.
Thank you for the hard work to preserve our history. I am a 1954 graduate and enjoying the older yearbooks. I was excited to find my aunt in the 1926 year book. I called her daughter and son in Washington State and they were very touched by this. Thank you again for the dedicated work you are doing.
Interestingly, I, Bob Johnson, live in Puyallup, WA. I am a 1965 graduate and do most of the work on the Preservation of Central History from home.
Does anyone know where I can find 1975 central high school year book. I’m looking for my dad Kenny bales . He passed away in 2010. Any help appreciated ! Thanks
Thank you so much for doing this. I was able to find my grandmother and my aunt in the 1919-1926 yearbooks. What a blessing.
Just reminiscing. I moved to Texas during my sophomore yeast, but have many fond memories.
Make that sophomore year in 1962.
if anyone is interested i have my grandfathers central champion from 1908 and i see the earliest champion you show is 1912, i would be willing to donate since i am also an alumni of central i would be proud to have this reproduced for everyone to enjoy as i have rather than it to sit in my safety deposit box locked away and no one enjoying but me on occasion. it has a few cut outs where my grandfather cut his picture out and gave to friends but otherwise it is in remarkable shape for it’s age. let me know if you are interested
Interested for sure. I can be delivered to the Chattanooga Central Librarian or mailed to Bob Johnson, 8909 180th St. Ct. E, Puyallup, WA 98375. Will reimburse for mailing costs.
Was there no yearbook for 1912? Looking for the graduating class of that time.
As far a known, there was no Champion for 1912.
Thanks to all involved with the Champion yearbook project. I would have been a Central High graduate of 1965, but transferred to Kirkman Technical High School to learn the printing trade. Seeing the old yearbooks from junior high school and beyond has been very enjoyable. Seeing some old friends and the ‘rotundra’ brings back many memories.
Is there a way to get 1998’s yearbook on here please!
Yes. Will add.
1995 and 1996??? Can it be added?
Both have been added.
Can you please add 2015? Thanks so much!!
