Interview with Marcia Webb Lecke
QUESTION 28
INTERVIEWER:

ALMOST NONE. UM, LET ME BACK UP FOR A MOMENT HERE, AND ASK YOU TO DESCRIBE CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL FOR US. BIG SCHOOL?

Marcia Webb Lecke:

Little Rock Central is one of the most beautiful buildings, and one of the prettiest schools, and so when I think of it, I have such, such nice thoughts about the school. But it is huge. And I moved here from um, Dallas, when I was a junior, and it was a rather large high school that I moved from, but nothing compared to Central. So when you go in, and particularly if you go in at the bottom floor of one of the side, um, side entrances, and you have a first class in that part of the building, and then your second class is maybe on the third floor at the other end of the building, that's when you really become aware of how big the school is. And how many students there are in the halls. Which is why, if you're the type of student who gets to class on time, then you don't have a lot of time for milling and greeting and whatever else students, students tend to amble, today, instead of walk. But if you're at Central, you have to walk.
