LaShonna Holloway (255) and Bryan Johnson (255)

Bryan and I met in 1992 during our freshman year (class of 255!!). The first time we met, we locked eyes in the hallway and that was the moment where our souls connected. Naturally, we wanted to get to know each other better. One day after gym class, Bryan and I stayed behind to sit on the bleachers to talk. I’m sure we both missed our next class or two. We both remember it being an amazing conversation and at the end Bryan gave me his gold chain to wear.

Although Tia and I knew each other at Central, the story of our relationship started almost fifteen years after graduation with a chance meeting at an academic conference in San Diego. We talked at length and once we realized that we were both on the same return flight to Philadelphia, Tia switched her seat so we could sit next to each other and continue getting to know each other.

Throughout our time within Central hallowed halls, Kevin and I only shared two classes. We had known each other before high school, but we were not close; he is the cousin of a friend, and we would occasionally end up at the same get-togethers. However, he left an impression on me in those two measly classes.

Jade Uffelman (270) and Pierre Powers (270)

Our love story actually started pre-Central! Pierre and I grew up in the same neighborhood and have known each other for ~18 years. It wasn’t until high school where we bonded freshman year on the track team (he taught me how to properly run long distance) and took the bus home together.

Lancers and libraries. She noticed him while at a group training for their after school jobs at Philadelphia Public Libraries. They first met each other in the 3rd floor middle corridor of CHS in between the buzzer rings. Sean was walking out of choir rehearsal down the hall towards the steps with Patricia’s childhood best friend, Stephanie Waskiewicz 266.
