We understand there will be a memorial on Jan. 4, 2011.

You'll remember that the Class of 1955 successfully campaigned for the naming of the Media Center of a new high school to honor Mr. Sanders. He was our Assistant Principal and became Central High Principal the next year. Bless CHS'55 for accomplishing their goal before his passing.  -JG
