Central High School of Memphis,Tennessee-Central 80's Reunion Summit

Central High Reunion Summit.Com

Central High School of Memphis,Tennessee is having a class reunion for all of the classes of the 80’s. Central High School was Memphis’premier high school during that particular era! Central High was also Memphis’ first high school period. That’s why there is a large H on the gym floor of Central High. These were the initial graduating classes under the new optional program which was launched by the Memphis City Schools in the late seventies!

Central High School boasted some of the best academic, and all around students that the Memphis City School System had to offer at that time! Many of these graduates will be the future leaders of Memphis,Tennessee and beyond!

I just want to thank you for answering a question that popped into my head last week. "Was the Bone Family real?" As a kid, I remember being told that I better be in before it got dark or the Bone Family would get me- yeah we lived in Midtown/North Memphis. Now, when my sons go out to play (We have since fled the general insanity of Memphis - politics/relocation plans/the H. Dynasty/lack of economic prosperity and job opportunites)I am forced to ask myself about the Bone family. So thanks for confirming that little random fact from childhood. Peace and keep working on bringing "real" back.

These comments brought back some very old and very cool memories of THE High School circa 82-85'. Also finding out that a cousin of mine was the main hellraiser of the Who Alpha Zetas and laughing my head off cause i used to kick his ass all while we were growing up. I think i hear The Boss's "Glory Days" in the background. former Gent (G Psi Phi) office holder. D.Wil
