Chandler, Ariz. – (January 27, 2015) Chandler High School is celebrating 100 years of serving East Valley area high school students this year. Founded in 1914, just two years after the city of Chandler was founded, Chandler High School will celebrate its centennial with a special book dedicated to documenting Chandler High’s history and growth, alumni memories, curriculum changes throughout the years and Chandler High School Sports Hall of Fame.

The Centennial Book will include letters from city and state officials, memories of events that occurred over the last 100 years, photos of the current graduating class, local business advertisements and photos of alumni with space to submit a quote for publishing in the book. Chandler High School’s Principal Larry Rother explains the importance of this Centennial Book to the city of Chandler: “Chandler High is one of a small group of Arizona schools that can say they have served their community for 100 years, and this book will provide the most authentic account of that history from those who lived it – Chandler’s Alumni.”

Chandler High School has a long history of expansion to accommodate the area’s population growth. The school building has undergone several construction developments, most notably the original development in 1922, the frame and architecture of which still stands today. Subsequently, Chandler High School was used as a promotional tool to attract out of state residents who were interested in settling in Arizona and providing their children with superior education. According to Images of America Chandler, the Chandler High School building “was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.” Not only does Chandler High School have a long history of providing superior education and adapting to the needs of local residents, Chandler High is home to notable alumni. Among the graduating alumni: several NFL players, major league baseball players, WNBA players, actors, authors and community business leaders, including Eddie Basha, Jr.

The Centennial Yearbook is a very special and memorable anthology that will appeal to Chandler High School alumni and Arizona residents alike.
