Fondest memories of your days at Central:
I proudly graduated from Central High School in 1960.  I went to Central beginning in my sophomore year, entering from Brainerd Jr High in 1957.  I joined the Nite Owl social club that same year and was a cheerleader.  I absolutely loved every minute of my high school years at Central.  We had such passionate pep rallies and fabulous football games.  All of our athletic divisions were just great! 
The teachers were terrific!  My hat's off to anyone that would try to teach all of us 'little rascals'!!!!!!  They did it and they did it very well.
Central is where I met and married my high school sweetheart, Donnie Allen, class of '59.  We met in my sophomore year and dated four years then married in 1961
 

My life since graduation:  
"Little Donnie", as some used to call him, is the love of my life and we treasure our days together.  We call him "Don" now since there is a "Donnie, Jr", and we call our younger son "Bobby".  Our two sons are all grown up now and we have five grandchildren and one great-grandchild and two dachshunds.
I worked for Hamilton County Chancery Court for a little over 23 years and retired in 2002 at the age of 60.  I absolutely love retirement and it allowed me to have four quality years with my Mother before she died at the age of 93 in January, 2007.  Ten more days and she would have been 94.  My Father had passed away in 1969 at the early age of 56.  I miss them both very much but they are back together now and that gives me comfort.
I have a wonderful sister, Martha Jean Woods Wardlaw, Central class of '56.  We are very close and love being together and making memories.
I have a wonderful family and friends.  I feel very blessed each and every day.  I thank God for the wonderful life he has given me.
