Students show off their fashion

Central High School’s 20th annual Fashion Show and Prom Preview took place Sunday and saw 80 participants walk to show off their clothes to raise funds for the school’s prom. Participants showcased spring wear from Peebles department store, Hibbett Sports, Dillard’s department store, David’s Bridal and Southernly Sweet Teas.

This year’s fashion show started out with a moment of silence in remembrance of George Sunbury, a longtime educator whose work influenced marketing and business education classes.

“Last Friday morning the Central Charger family suffered a tragic loss,” said teacher Jean Kunath. “Longtime faculty member Mr. George Sunbury passed away in his home. Growing up and educated in Pennsylvania Mr. Sunbury began teaching business at Lunenburg Junior High School in the fall of 1969.”

She said after several years in that position he began teaching at CHS.

“As the marketing teacher and DECA sponsor for 40 plus years, Mr. Sunbury has placed hundreds of Chargers in businesses throughout this area and led numerous students to award winning competition on the district, state and national level,” Kunath said.

DECA is an international association of high school and college students and teachers of marketing, management and entrepreneurship in business, finance, hospitality and marketing sales and service.

She said in May Sunbury was to be awarded at the National DECA conference in Atlanta, Georgia for his decades of service to DECA students.
