CHS Marks 50 Years Since First Classes
Saturday, 25 April 2015 01:20
Fifty years ago this week students at creaky, old Chattooga High School loaded up their pencils and notebooks and moved.
A sparkling new Chattooga High School awaited them.
The move didn’t have to happen when it did. There were only about two months left in the 1964-65 school year when the new high school was declared ready for occupation.
“We wanted to be the first class to graduate from the new school,” said John Turner, who would return to CHS a few years later as a teacher. “They asked the senior class if we wanted to stay at the old school or move to the new high school and most of wanted to move.”
The “old school” was located in what would later become Summerville Junior High. Most of those facilities, located on Rome Blvd. across from United Community Bank, were torn down several years ago. Today only the old high school auditorium and the old superintendent’s office remain. 
Turner said he had mixed feelings about moving to the new building. He wanted his class to the first to graduate from the new school, but he also had warm memories of the old school.

The new Sugarville Sweets Bakery sold 1,560 doughnuts Thursday, said Jennifer Schmid during the grand opening ribbon cutting held this morning.

The bakery is located in downtown Summerville at 10127 Commerce Street and is open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Schmid starts her day at the bakery between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. by cooking fresh batches of doughnuts, cupcakes and other baked goods. 

Any leftovers, which so far that has been none, will go to the local homeless shelter or churches.
