Notes: This list was compiled from the plaques that are  displayed in the Auditorium Lobby at the school. There are two separate plaques for "Gordon Warner"; one dated 1925 and another 1929. I really doubt that there could be such a coincidence of two people with the same name being appointed four years apart. The Progress article above mentions only one, graduating the Academy in 1934. That same article also refers to Brig. Gen. Frederick Ammerman. There is no plaque at the school for him, so he may have graduated elsewhere.  I'll have to do some more research.

Also, the article mentions "Robert R." Lutz graduating the academy in 1933, while at CHS there is a plaque instead for "Horace" Lutz in 1929.

Col. Laurel Hummel, CHS '78, was a member of the third class at West Point to accept female applicants
and the first female cadet from Clearfield County.
