Mookie reflects on the loss of Central High School:
I felt like I got punched in the gut when I read that Central was closing. As a part of the magnet program, I spent half my day in high school there. That's where my friends were and my favorite teachers. That's where we used to go exploring in the old wing after hours. But, aside from my personal memories, my mom went there, my grandma went there (in the '20s). It's a part of Flint's history and I'm afraid it's just going to become more urban decay.
