Centennial High School

Retired Principal Randy Spain Honored By CHS

Dec 14, 2016

When Centennial High School opened in 2003 Randy Spain was principal. He helped steer the community and the school through the transition from a one high school District to a multiple High School District with patience, a strong presence, and a smile. He eased the fears and concerns of students who began their high school careers as Raccoons and ended it as Titans.

Spain retired at the end of 2015-2016 but to CHS students who opened the school and those who followed, he embodied the spirit of the original Titan. Under his leadership, CHS gained a reputation for seeking excellence in all things.

The CHS National Honor Society recently donated a plaque in Spain’s name that now graces the campus courtyard. Spain was shown the plaque before he left at the end of last school year and returned this year for its installation ceremony.

“Being the founding principal of Centennial High School was, and remains to this day, one of the highlights of my personal and professional career,” Spain said in an interview with a CHS journalist. “[I] was so honored to have been entrusted with such an enormous responsibility, as well as, the unbelievable opportunity to get to be a small part of helping to build such an outstanding school and culture from the ground up.”
