Fondest memories of your days at Central:
Enter my jr. year. The uniqueness of the school, the worn down marble steps, the rotunda, the great time we had on movie day, outside at lunch, and who could or would forget Football Time at Central High.


My life since graduation:  
After H.S. I married Jim Copp(city'58). The next two years working to pay the bills while Jim finished his last years at Tenn Tech.  After he graduated in '63 it was his time to work.  I was a stay at home mom doing all David's sports events & all Pam's dancing classes for the next few years.  Back to outside work at Red Bank Jr.& Red Bank High School for the next few years until the funding for my job closed.  Jim retired from TVA in '94.We started Copp Engineering & Surveying Inc. here in Chattanooga that year with our son David (Georgia Tech 85) as his business partner.  David & Robin (Principal at Sale Creek Middle/High School) they have two boys Zac 22 he works in the business & Wes 19 is at TTU.  Our daughter Pam (Kirton Dental Lab) & Travis Capehart (Grant Officer at Virginia College) have Callie 13 and Will 11 both at Sale Creek Middle School.  We had a few bumps in the road Jim had 6 bypasses and I had a knee implant.  We will have to say Life has been good. Still working every day being part of the children's & grandchildren's lives.
