Fondest memories of your days at Central:
There are so many fond memories but the most precious to me are my dear friends Pat, Lynn P., Lynn D., and Judy. We still are so very close after all these years. We get together every Christmas and ever once in a while go on a trip and act like we are eighteen again. After my first day at Central I thought it was such a friendly and welcoming school. I shall never forget the senior trip. What a great trip!

My life since graduation:  
After graduation I attended business college for a year and then worked as a secretary. I later met Jack Jett (1962 graduate of Hixson High) after dating for a year we married in 1965. I continued to work until our first child was born and then became a stay at home mom. I returned to work after our youngest child started school. I worked for TVA for twelve years and currently work at the Chattanooga National Cemetery as a Program Support Assistant. We have three grown children David (age 34), Cynthia (31) and Robert (26). Two of our children are married but we do not have grandchildren yet. God Bless all!
