Untitled[edit]

Victuallers 17:43, 16 March 2007 (UTC) So, do we allow Jayson Blair to be an alumnus? He did go to Centreville.

And what about Theatre Centreville Drama external site? Nothing I see wrong with that.

I am going to revert the edits by 208.31.155.254 because they are opinions and do not have factual basis. I will leave on the part about renovation and athletes being drug addicts with a template message

Those statements about "suspension for drug abuse" would probably be a reference to a few baseball players 2 or 3 years ago, but the writing is poor and, when taken out of context, could be assumed to indicate steroid use. I don't see the purpose in leaving it in, without any sources.

Notable?[edit]

What is the criterion for being a "notable" alumnus/a? I suggest to list only those people who have a wikipedia article. --Aleph-4 10:40, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

See this page for the guidelines regarding this. While having an article is a fairly good measure of notability, it's slightly more complicated than that. --FlamingSilmaril 22:01, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Seung-hui Cho[edit]

This article should be edited to remove Seung-hui Cho from the list of Centreville alumni. He is a graduate of crosstown rival school Westfield. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.24.31.108 (talk) 16:48, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

That would be incorrect. Cho attneded Centreville for one school year, September 1999- June 2000, before going to Westfield, which opened in September 2000. KeepOnTruckin Complain to me | my work here 20:50, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Ludacris[edit]

Is there a cite or reference showing that Ludacris went here? I've looked, and the only one I've found is a passing mention here in the Washington Examiner. Any more concrete sources? FlamingSilmaril (talk) 15:19, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Call the school and ask? 703 802 5400 KeepOnTruckin Complain to me | my work here 04:32, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

According to Luda's own article, "He attended Oak Park and River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois,and Banneker High School in Atlanta, Georgia." I think this one is local legend. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.205.150.226 (talk) 15:41, 16 October 2009 (UTC)
