Grad Times at Central High

Central High School, Memphis, Tennessee

Venerable Central High School in Memphis (THE high school) has turned out some noted graduates over the years since 1912. They include Kemmons Wilson, creator of Holiday Inn, Alex Chilton of the Box Tops musical group, and other notaries.

We’re celebrating 18 year-old Joel Carter from Midtown who has moved on to university in Johnson City, TN looking to study Business.

Mrs. Mary Young

For a number of years Joel attended at Community of Faith with his friend and neighbor Mary Young, a pillar here in Memphis GCI.

“He sort of tagged along with me,” Mary says, but her good example and watchful eye over Joel while his mother worked had a lot to do with it. So congratulations to both of you.

Memphis is a city and a church where things keep moving along.
