On Wednesday, April 17, students may have "free dress" to help collect funds for the Taylor Conrad Special Needs Playground Fund in honor/memory of LCpl. Taylor Conrad. Students must donate a dollar, but you are welcome to donate more. Bellingrath, Tanglewood, and Central Middle School are also participating. CHS will sponsor a day next week.

Lance Cpl. Taylor Conrad passed away in a helicopter crash on April 3, 2018. Taylor was a Crew Chief assigned to HMH-465. He had been a proud marine for 2 years.
Before serving his country Taylor was a servant to his community. Most near and dear to his heart were those with special needs. While a student at Central High School Taylor served those with special needs through the Best Buddies program - an organization that pairs special needs students with peers. After graduation Taylor continued his mission to serve at Charis Hills, a summer camp for those with special needs. Taylor’s mission was to bring joy to those who needed it most.
Please help us carry on Taylor’s legacy with a donation toward those with special needs in the City of Central, Louisiana. We would like to open a memorial playground for those with special needs. By doing so we hope to bring the same joy to those with special needs as Taylor did.
All funds will be donated by the family to the Central School System, and will be earmarked for Taylor’s cause.
