I have a secret...I want to be a goat herder when I graduate high school. Just kidding. Although, if my future profession as a missionary does not go as planned, goat farming, here I come. My grandparents just got a farm not too long ago, and along with the other animals, they bought Nigerian dwarf...

Walking into high school as a freshman can be hard. Every aspect of the year from being called a grape, getting booed at during pep rallies, or getting excluded from the overall group; it is not the most fun grade. However, it is funny how fast our opinions change over the years as we make our way from...

Over the past four years at Central High School I have met some wonderful individuals and enjoyed the ups and downs here at my home. Becoming a Pounder at first was very hard for me, moving to a school and town where I did not know anyone or even know the area well. The community here at Central was...

As many have noticed over the past several weeks, the flu is going around. It has been so widespread, Hamilton County and other surrounding counties closed school February 10th because of the amount of absences in schools that week.

Happy Valentine's Day! Before we dive into what Valentine's Day is, let us take a look at the history.  In 496 A.D., Pope Gelasius designated Feb. 14 as “Saint Valentine’s Day.” It was a day dedicated for Saint Valentine, who was killed on February 14th 269 A.D. In the late 1300s, a famous ...

On September 6, 2016,  football players from both Central and East Ridge prayed on the field...

Last Friday was Central's Senior Night, where the school honors the students that are in the 12th grade who participate in either football, cheerleading, or band. This is the last home game for the seniors and it was great game. The Pounders won 37-0 against Sequoyah High School and clinched a berth...

Every year, students are collected out of their English classes and placed in front a camera, grey background behind them, and a forced smile plastered on their faces. Picture day was September 13, 2016 and grades 9th through 11th took pictures for the yearbook. As for the seniors, they are scrambling...
