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.
Student(s) of the Year:
The DeEmmett Bradshaw Zerbe, CHS 1943, and Mason Speltz Zerbe, CHS 1948, Central High School Student of the Year Scholarships are named after two brothers who were model students who embodied what it means to be an Eagle at Central High School. Two $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to one Central High School senior male student and one Central High School senior female student who plan to attend a college, university, or trade school and who have spent the past four years demonstrating the same academic, leadership, community and school spirit that Mason and DeEmmett represented during their time at Central.
Teacher of the Year:
Will receive a $1,000 to use on tuition, professional development, or other related classroom 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 scholarship recipients are announced at the Senior Recognition Ceremony, which is held each May. The ceremony is open to the public and held at the Central High School Auditorium.
