Alicia Gooch, Central High School athletic secretary, has been named the recipient of the March 2013 Cause for Applause employee recognition award.
On Jan. 19, Central High School hosted the “Celebrating Our Heritage” event for alumni of Central and current students, families, and past staff. Sponsored by Central and EVSC Foundation, the event featured an alumni reception prior to the basketball game and a Walk of Champions to honor past honors and awards of the school.
Gooch worked on the alumni reception – from planning to cleanup. “She was determined to make all of the Central families have a wonderful time,” said nominator Sue Mattingly, secretary to the principal. Mattingly said that Gooch not only brought in her own personal glassware to make the event more elegant, but also designed the flower arrangements, and served as hostess for the event.
