For the first time 41 years, Central will graduate a group of seniors.
In all, 76 students will walk across the stage Sunday as the first graduates of Central Magnet School.
The school was converted into a magnet school three years ago serving grades 6-10 with grades 11 and 12 phased in. The school is the county's first magnet high school and features an accelerated curriculum with a math and science focus.
But Central has a storied past and many local residents count themselves as graduates of the old Central High School, which opened in 1948. It was eventually converted to a middle school after Oakland and Riverdale high schools opened in 1972.
Central Magnet School will hold its graduation at MTSU's Murphy Center on Sunday, May 19, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
