Butch Border
The Centralia Sports Hall of Fame
2001 VIP Award Winner


 

The 1961 graduate of Centralia High School has been one of the biggest boosters of all sports in Centralia. 
 
He was President of the CHS All Sports Booster Club from 1995 to 2003. Since 1993, he has been a member of the Centralia Sports Hall of Fame Committee. In 1996, he Co-Chaired the “90 Years of Orphan Basketball” celebration. 

Since CHS was recognized as the "Winningest Team in the Nation”, Border worked with the Illinois Legislature to have highway signs with that designation located at each highway entrance to Centralia.
 
He put in many hours reorganizing the trophy cases at CHS (over 400 trophies). In 2002, he was named to the I.B.C.A. Hall of Fame as a fan.
