Welcome to the official website of Central High School
Phoenix, Arizona, Class of '65
 

We now have over 300 online members from our graduating class.  If you're a classmate and have not yet joined, just click here How to Join this Website.  If you're already a member, use the site to keep updated and stay in touch with fellow classmates.  Don't forget to periodically update your own profile with your news and photos!


 

Stay Connected

 

 

 

The Central65 website serves as a gathering place for 1965 classmates.
Whenever there's an event like a reunion or an informal get together we'll send around a message to give you the essentials and steer you here for more information, registration or contacts.

It's also the town square for the global village our class now inhabits. A place to keep in touch. You and your classmates are spread out over 33 states and three countries (that we know of) and 79 of us are dead and gone ... that we know of. 

So here's an electronic center to celebrate successes, join a memorial or just stay connected. Don't wait until you get an In Memory announcement! Log into The Chatter for the daily conversation. Let folks hear how you're doing by updating your Profile from time to time. Watch for Profile Updates of classmates, too, where you can drop a thought or reflection. What are you waiting for?


Time isn't the main thing. It's the only thing.

For Excellence and Dedication

On December 17, 2018, Alex Hinds was inducted into the Phoenix Union High School District Sports Hall of Fame for his accomplishmenrts on the Central High wrestling team. The dedication on the award read in part:

"Alex weighed only 88lbs his freshman year, but made the Varsity Wrestling team competing
in the 95lb. division. In his sophmore year, junior and senior seasons, he won the State Wrestling Championshiips in three different weight divisions. Alex won 57-straight matches and did not miss a match during his four years. In 1965, his senior season, Central won the State Wrestling Championship." 

An amazing story! He makes every '65 Cat proud. You can see a full gallery of photos with Alex and Central '65 classmates in a revist to Central and at the PUHSD award ceremony, by clicking *here.*

 


 

Don't worry -- Central65 will be here for another 2,313 days.

 "Please don't retire the website! I may not use it enough but its so important that we all keep up with our friends. For me I was in 6th grade when I met so many at Madison Meadows...now I'm 72 and I still think of everyone," wrote Diane Speros (Weaver) recently.

Thank you, Diane, for the kind thoughts. Not to worry, we're paid up with ClassCreator through April 4, 2025!

Even if we don't update it as often as we should, important functions like Classmate Profiles, What's New? The Chatter, and Message Center are all on autopilot.  They're here for you everyday. However, if you see one of the site administrators or webpage pilots In Memory, well, you may need some new volunteers to keep the pages up to date and passwords working!

 


In Memory

Please help us keep our In Memory page up-to-date. At this point in time, we think we're falling behind in learning of those we've lost. If you know of anyone, let us know.

It's important not only to acknowledge those who shared our high school days, In Memory also creates a page for classmates to reflect and add their thoughts and goodbyes to old friends.

Missing Bobcats

Many of our classmates have not yet been located.  This not only prevents them from keeping up to date with Class of 65 happenings (like the 50th Reunion) but it is also a lost opportunity for you keeping in touch with each other. Can you help us find someone? Please click here – Missing Bobcats – to learn how you can be a part of our search team.
