CCHAT needs your help in finding Issues 6, 8, and 12 of Volume 63 for School Year 1978 – 1979.

Please check you Central memorabilia and let us know if you have these issues.

If you do, we would like you to donate them to the Central Library or allow to borrow them for photographing.

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During our sorting of historical documents in the Library, we found an Issue 1 with September, 1981 date on Page 1 and a September, 1980 date printed on Page 4.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.
