The students returning to Central High in Hamilton County discovered something missing this year. In fact, this item has been missing since 1968. That would be the school’s planned second auditorium. Most of the schools in this Chattanooga district have a gym and an auditorium. One is for sports and the other for assemblies. Not so with Central High but it wasn’t for a lack of planning. Recently uncovered architectural drawings and floor plans show that a sprawling “multi-purpose auditorium, with classrooms, music rooms and storage areas was to be built at a later date.” That was forty-five years ago and they’re still waiting.
Editor in chief of the school’s online newspaper, Ray Walker is on the case. “It’s disappointing that we seem to always get overlooked,” Walker said. “You look at other high schools, even middle schools, and they have better facilities than we do. Central is a great old school with a lot of pride, but people seem to forget about us.” He is putting the pressure on Hamilton County to come through with the new building.
Thanks to Ray’s investigation there is one commissioner who is standing up for the students. Chester Bankston of District 9, whose children graduated from Central said, “I will support them all the way. This community deserves what everyone else already has. We really need to build a new Harrison Elementary, but maybe there’s a way to do this project in a way that will benefit Central.”
