District launches Hall of Fame
A former superintendent and two alumni are the inaugural members of the Centennial School District’s Hall of Fame.
The ceremonies coincided with Centennial High School homecoming activities. Honored were:
• John McClellan, superintendent from 1976-2000 and now executive director of the Herb Brooks Foundation;
• Dave Dahl, Class of 1972, now chief meteorologist at KSTP-Ch. 5;
• Charlies Kratsch, Class of 1985, founder of the Infinite campus.
The district said the Hall of Fame honors alumni and supporters “who help make Centennial schools great.”
