Principal's reflections on the Class of 2022: When we started this year, I asked our staff to help this graduating class to create something that will last forever. This class deserved the memories that most of us cherish when looking back on our high school years. As always, I knew we could count on our staff to do this, but we were going to need great leaders in our senior class to lead our underclassmen, who have never been in our building for a full school year. We needed a senior class that could remember, re-establish, and reinvent what it means to be a Central Tiger so that we could all continue to create something that lasts forever. 276 days later, it's clear that all of our seniors were indeed that class -- the class we needed -- the right class, for the right time.
