Congratulations to Senior, Alex Rest!  He is representing Central Community High School at the Illinois Principals Association Student Recognition Breakfast on the Campus of Greenville College Wednesday, March 15th.  This event recognizes student leadership and Alex received the most votes from Central's faculty.  Alex demonstrates leadership by the support he shows his fellow students through his participation as a committee member of the Pit Crew.  His teachers appreciate his work ethic in class and his compassion toward other students as well.  Well done Alex!  Central has recognized our senior leadership at this event for the last 23 years.  M.J. noted there were several great candidates nominated this year.  Go Cougars!!
