Restoration of the fire-damaged school auditorium required removing and reinstalling seats. An opportunity to replace the old wooden seats with new upholstered seats was suggested by Joan and Bernie Spain (198) who agreed to help underwrite the effort with seed money. Alumni may dedicate a seat “In Honor Of” or “In Memory Of” an individual(s) for $300.00. Classes can organize to purchase entire rows. Dedication will be memorialized with a brass plate. Note: dedicated seats may not be contiguous.

It is critical to the future of Central that graduates give back to the school by giving to support programs such as Science Fair, Robotics, Dramatics, Publications, Music, Art and Athletics. Donations to AACHS have provided for the construction of a new faculty lounge as well as the gifting of laptop computers to all faculty members.
The need to support these and other of the school’s programs is especially acute now as the School District’s ability to do so is currently questionable and, at best, minimal.
The ultimate demonstration of where your dollars go, the good they do, as well as the AACHS commitment to the school, was the rebuilding of the Barnwell Library into a 21st century research facility and conference center which changed the learning culture of the school.
Please make your contribution today to enable AACHS to continue to help CHS and its students grasp the opportunities and meet the challenges of the present and the future.
