The pandemic has been tough. One of the many losses has been opportunities for Center alumni to gather in-person to reconnect and celebrate accomplishments. We are hopeful that conditions will improve and plans are being made to get together once again. If you are planning an alumni event and would like help publicizing it, please send details to Rick Chambers at

Upcoming events include:

  • Homecoming - The annual Homecoming Football game will be held on Friday, October 1st. We hoped to be able to hold the annual alumni dinner, tours of the school & museum, and induction of the new members of the Athletic Hall of Fame. Unfortunately, we have had to cancel all indoor parts of the evening. The football game is still scheduled and alumni can attend and receive free admission. Click here for details and to register.
  • Athletic Hall of Fame Inductions - due to restrictions on attendance at games and events this past year, we opted to not do any Hall of Fame inductions until we were able to give the inductees a proper recognition! Plans are in the works to expand the Athletic Hall of Fame to recognize even more outstanding Yellowjacket athletes, coaches, and boosters. Details and opportunities for you to submit nominations will be coming soon. 
  • Center Museum Reopening - along with so many other things, the Center Museum has been closed during the pandemic. While restrictions are easing, construction work at Center High School will keep us "locked out" until later this summer. The volunteer staff of the museum are eager to get back to work and open to the museum to more visitors. Stay tuned for a reopening event this fall!
  • Class of 1971 50-year reunion has been postponed until sometime in 2022. Stay tuned for details. 
  • Class of 1967 is starting to plan their 55th reunion for spring, 2022. If you are interested in helping to organize the event, please contact Patricia Barnes at or 361-438-7380.
  • Class of 1962 60th reunion will be held on Thursday, September 15, 2022 at RC’s in Martin City. Time & cost to be determined.
