October 28, 2019
Throughout its history, Central High School has produced numerous intelligent people that go on to succeed in the world; this is no exception to Central Alumna Flor Ramirez.
A 2012 graduate, Ramirez enjoyed her time at Central, from the different classes that she took to the different groups she was in, such as wrestling. Ramirez labelled herself as a “mat girl.”
As most people know, teachers are always coming and going at Central. Some of them are strict, but others leave lasting impressions on students, which is very important. Teachers that help students and encourage them to do better will always be remembered and cherished. For Ramirez, that teacher was Mrs. Susan Dyer.
“Anytime I needed [Dyer], she was waiting with open arms. She always felt like my school mom and always encouraged me to do better and pushed me in the right direction; I can’t forget the cookies that she sold between classes. They were the best,” Ramirez stated.
After she graduated from Central, Ramirez attended Chattanooga State Community College for dental hygiene, but she later decided her passion was elsewhere and transferred to Regency Beauty Institute.
“I went to Chatt State for a year and a half but dropped out my third semester. I went for dental hygiene and physical therapy. Then, [I] left to peruse cosmetology at Regency Beauty Institute. I have been doing hair for three years!” stated Ramirez enthusiastically.
Overall, Ramirez had a wonderful experience at Central within her classes to her clubs. She always had support from her teachers who helped her reach for higher goals. She had one piece of advice for students to always remember:
“Always be kind to one another; you never know when the last time you will see someone, but don’t let friends hold you back. Not everything is fun and games,” concluded Ramirez.
