Ed Sanders Media Center to be Dedicated

By Frank Clontz

On October 29 Ed Sanders will be honored at the new Rocky River High School in Mint Hill, NC. The Media Center will be dedicated to him in honor of all his work during his years with the Charlotte/Mecklenburg School System. There will be a large photo of him placed in the Media Center that already has a plaque and other things dedicated to his work over the years.

Those attending will be fed a lunch, however they will need a count of those that plan to attend. Mr. Sanders and his family will be there for the ceremony that will take place at 12:30 PM. Since it will be a teachers workday the students will not be on campus which will make it much easier for visitors to park and make their way around the school.

The location of the School is 10505 Clear Creek Commerce Drive which is off the Matthews-Mint Hill Road just off Albemarle Road. The actual name of the main road, Highway 51 in that section is called Blair Road.

All Central High students are welcome. Should any of the CHS54 members plan to attend it would be appreciated if they would send an email to davidmckinnon@windstream.net in order for him to get an estimate of the number. Hopefully we'll get a decent number of our students to attend as we were trying to get CMS to name the school after him.

It is a long story but CMS will not name a school after anyone still living but with all the work involved we were able to get the Media Center, about 10k sq ft named after him. -FC
