OUR STORY - About CTS Alumni Association

We, the Central Technical School Alumni Association would like to thank all who have so generously contributed their time and talents in order to make these past few years leading up to the 100th celebration an epic occasion to remember. 

Some will remember the rededication of the War Memorial and the commemoration of the 100thCornerstone Anniversary celebration on Friday, November 8, 2013 as the first public event and kickoff, but this particular weekend has evolved through many hours, weeks, months and years of behind the scenes work and humble commitment to the school’s own motto:

To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield.

When we celebrated Central Technical School’s 100th milestone, I asked everyone to pause a moment to remember all of the former students, faculty, and staff who have shared their stories, time, and honour for the school, with the current students and the community around us.  Pride and honour are not just words: as CTS graduates.  The pride is in our history with the school and the community in which we all share.  It is an honour to be a part of the CTS story.

Thank you for being a part of the EPIC celebrations.

It’s something to be proud of — being a TECH student.  We part of the Legacy of Spirit for the future.
