HAPPENINGS AT C.H.S

Collected from Black Diamonds

     Homecoming Chapel 1993 took place in the newly renovated auditorium.  The dedication for the auditorium was held May 13, 1994 and named Simon Estes Auditorium.

     In 1998, the Career Tech wing was added to facilitate a real need.  The Marching 100 celebrated 100 years of football at the pre-game activities by performing a scramble and making 100 using each band member.


     State speech contest included mime, where short stories are told using only their bodies.


     Social Science used a mini-market of the New York Stock Exchange as a learning technique.


     Students became honorary janitors.  The Optimist Club accepted the challenge of cleaning up the city
park, painting equipment and raking.

     In the 80 's, a King was added to the Queen contest.  In the new millennium, for the first time, there was a tie and two young men were Kings with one Queen.


     After an 18-year break the drill team is back!  The first time they performed was 1952 using Sweet Georgia Brown. The Cadets performed for 30 years before ending in 1982.


     Students interested in Writing Tech class must apply, have an interview with an advisor and editor before being approved for the class.  Money was raised to paint the walls and new seats in 2000-2001 at an estimated cost of $430,000.


     Year 2002 was the first time a section called World Beat was a part of the Black Diamond.


     To become a member of National Honor Society, a student must have a 3.25 G.P.A., write three essays one each on Leadership, Citizenship and Character, be involved in three extra-curricular activities, complete five service hours, maintain a 3.00 G.P.A. and not miss more than three Friday meetings.


     In 2005, the Black Diamond was printed in
color for the first time in the history of C.H.S.

     The Ruggles Science Wing became a reality.

     Volume 84 of Black Diamond was published complete with World Beat and again in color in 2006.

NOTE: Several years during the depression and World War II, the economy dictated the necessity to suspend the publishing of the yearbook.
