Eleven former students of Central Collegiate are being honoured on the school's Wall of Excellence that was unveiled Wednesday.

The names of graduates on the wall starts with D.N. Hossie-1909, K.A. Hamilton-1917, G.F. Curtis-1924, E.R. Hopkins-1925, William McIntyre-1936, Allan Slaight-1948, Robert Currie-1956, Harley Brown-1957, Ron Graham-1957, Robin Broadway-1960, Pamela Wallin, 1970.

Former Moose Jaw resident, Ron Graham of Graham Construction is one of the inductees. While being honoured with a spot on the wall, Graham made an announcement of his own. A $100,000 scholarship fund for students going on from Central to the University of Saskatchewan.

He says it's a way to give back to his home community."It's interesting, the kinds of things that trigger giving back. For me it was the 100th Anniversary and we were back here seeing friends from high school, some very special people to us as we were growing up. Because we had been giving most recently to the university, we thought this would be a great time to reconnect with Central. Our initial commitment will happen and then the plan will be to build on that as well."
