Central Pounders Say Farewell to Science Teacher & Upcoming Retiree, Mr. Evans
Mr. Dillard Evans is finishing his teaching career and retiring after 11 years of being a Pounder.
As the school year comes to a close, we not only say goodbye to many students, but a special teacher as well. Mr. Dillard Evans is finishing his teaching career and retiring after 11 years of being a Pounder. Though he will be missed, Mr. Evans has contributed to countless graduates in his many years of teaching not only at Central, but all around the area as well.
As the valedictorian of a small high school in Cleveland, Tennessee, Mr. Evans continued his education and later graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 1973. Considering his father was a teacher and a principal, as well as his aunt, uncle, and siblings being involved with education, teaching seemed to be a natural fit for Evans. Therefore, he began his career by teaching in accredited schools throughout Chattanooga, Cleveland, and Atlanta, and would do so for the next 22 years, half of those precious years being at Central.
