Senior Recognition Ceremony

Honoring Our Students and Teachers

The Central High School Foundation is proud to sponsor this annual event, in which current Central High seniors are recognized for the scholarships and awards they have received. 

Annually since 1999, the CHS Foundation has honored a Student of the Year and a Teacher of the Year. Awardees receive $1,000 to use on tuition, professional development, or other related activity. The Foundation Board of Director's begin review of all nominations shortly after the submission deadline, carefully considering each nominee according to the award criteria.

Nominees are notified by the Central High School Foundation in April and are invited to the Senior Recognition Ceremony in May. The ceremony is open to the public and held at the Central High School Auditorium.

Please complete the appropriate nomination form below and email it to

2018 Student of the Year Application
2018 Teacher of the Year Application

It is a very difficult decision because so many outstanding individuals are nominated for both awards. We congratulate them all for their outstanding achievements and are so proud they are associated with Central High School!
