Subject: Characteristics of Central's Class of 1961


Male = 76 (33% of all Male Students) Female = 19 (10% of all Female Students)

Technical Students = 95 (23% of all Students)

A glassed walkway bridge separated the regular academic from the tech side at Central. Tech kids came over the bridge for academic classes but seldom did academic students cross over to the tech classrooms. The division wasnt only physical; it was also social. For the most part, Central students associated mainly among themselves and tech students did likewise. It seemed that the Central kids thought of themselves as being better than those manual labor types. Little did many know that the tech classmates were into educational fields besides auto body shop, welding, the culinary arts, fashion and cosmetology.

Sororities & fraternities have existed in high schools since the late 1800s. Much like in college these organizations had restricted memberships and social gatherings. One would have to be invited in and undergo some sort of induction /hazing, especially in the fraternities. Central was no different than other high schools in Syracuse.

Alethian 12 Gerosian 8 Amorelta 2 Senate - 11 Echeoratia 6 Lyceum 9 Philomatiian 13 Soangehatta - 5

Sororities = 47 of 193 females = 24% Fraternities = 19 of 233 males = 8%

Students who have grade averages above 90% were eligible to belong to this elite group. I dont know much about it as I wasnt in it. Those who had achieved 95% or higher were in the High Honor category.

Honor High Honor Males = 29 Males = 9 Females = 31 Females = 21

As with all high schools, after graduation some students relocate to places away from where they were raised and others decide to stay in the place they know best. The Central Techs class of 1961 was no different than others in this regard. The following is a listing of the states where we currently live, and for those in New York where our classmates reside. Klaus was our foreign exchange student from Austria (also being a Tech student) returned to his homeland. Only one among us, Santa Aloi, is the only student living outside the U. S. in Canada.

Stay well, be happy and enjoy life
