Today, our Chattanooga Central High Alumni & Supporters Association gave out these scholarships you see listed along with a couple of others. We currently give out more scholarships than any other high school (public or private) in Hamilton County, and possibly, the state of Tennessee. That scholarship list is growing every year. We are achieving great things! We are always looking for fresh ideas! We hold meetings on the second Thursday of each month at 6pm in the school library. You won’t be disappointed!
