Central’s Citizens of the Decade

Central’s Citizens of the Decade

Over the past 10 years, many citizens of Central have made an important contribution to building a new city, creating a new school system, developing the infrastructure, and building the economy.  Yet, there can be little doubt that the outstanding accomplishment of the decade 2005 to 2015 is the creation of the Central Community School System.  Citizens such as Russell Starns, the late Rep. Donald Ray Kennard, Mayor Mac Watts, the late Mayor Pro-Tem Ralph Washington, and then Rep. (now Sen.) Bodi White played pivotal roles.  Without them and many others, there would be no City of Central or Central Community School System.

But the day-to-day labor of creating a new school system and nurturing it has fallen to Supt. Mike Faulk and the members of the Central school board.  The current board, which has remained unchanged for the past five years, has built the new Central School Complex, renovated the schools, built the new 9th Grade Academy, and taken Central to be the No. 3 ranked school system in Louisiana.

For all these accomplishments and their dedicated service, the Central City News is proud to honor Supt. Faulk and the members of the school board as Central’s Citizens of the Decade!
