Evalyn R. Gill  Pierpoint    CHS 1928

I remember many teachers, especially Irma Costello and Bess Shackell, from whom I took four years of Latin and spent as much time preparing it as all other subjects together. Miss Costello urged me to enter a state contest in Lincoln  when I was a freshman studying ancient history under her. This dedicated teacher tutored me on her own time every day after school for many weeks before the contest.  We were rewarded and were able to bring back the first prize for Central High School.

Sebastian S. Manzitto      CHS 1939

I was a member of the Central High baseball team. In 1938 and 1939 we won city and state campionships. In 1939 I was named on the Central High School baseball Hall of Fame.  A great feeling when I think back sixty or so years.

Xiomara Avalos    CHS 2012

CHS has left me with so many memories but my favorite would be listening to Dr. Bigsby ("Dr. B") in the morning announcements. My morning will just never be complete anymore.
