Miller-Lanier Central Scholarship Fund
In 1924, Sidney Lanier Senior High School for Boys was opened on Holt Avenue followed by A. L. Miller Senior High School for Girls in 1932 on Montpelier Avenue. Lanier boys forged a reputation of state-wide academic and athletic renown in a distinctive, mandatory Army JROTC environment. Miller’s young women learned in a unique, all female environment which many alumnae credit with one of a kind leadership training. After a tragic fire in 1967 and integration in 1970, Lanier and Miller became Central High School. Central maintains the “We Lead” traditions of Lanier and Miller through JROTC, comprehensive athletics, and award winning International Baccalaureate and Fine Arts magnet programs. The Miller-Lanier-Central scholarship fund produces annual scholarships for outstanding college-bound Central seniors.
