It was the generosity of many people that resulted in the Central High School 100th Reunion being able to surpass their original target of $100,000  – they have raised over $103,000 to date that will help offset the significant costs of the reunion and allow them to lower the cost of ticketed events making them more affordable for the 2,300 people registrar so far.

Burlington Central High School – A long and very admirable role played in the evolution of the city.

    This is excellent news and a testament to community and alumni spirit! But I am troubled that the 100th anniversary also seems to reflect the organizers’ thinking. “Trojan Level” – what are they thinking??!! I realize that it is the name for the Central athletic teams but hasn’t there been some attempt to make it more inclusive, at least gender neutral. I can’t imagine the damage that is being done to impressionable young minds with this constant reminder of a male ‘warrior elite’ plus a society that was raped and pillaged by the crafty Greeks. And can our indigenous students identify with this white classical heritage? It must remind them constantly of the aggressive colonization of the ancient civilizations and their assimilation of other cultures and bring home the thoughtless absorption of their own far older way of life. And I would think that the colloquial association of “Trojan” with “condom” would be enough to avoid the reference – Central Sheiks, Central Rubbers! Really? Where was our school board when all this planning was going on?
