There is no system wide bash_logout, according to the bash man page,  
CentOS 4.7.

Instead look at the way a system wide bashrc is included in ~/.bashrc:
   [ -f /etc/bashrc ] && . /etc/bashrc
You could do the same in ~/.bash_logout:
   [ -f /etc/bash_logout ] && . /etc/bashrc

If you want to include that line for every new user's ~/.bash_logout, add  
it to the file /etc/skel/.bash_logout, then create the user(s).
