You’re sitting in class.  Maybe you’re really interested in the subject that the teacher is talking about.  Maybe you’re sitting in a class that happens to be the subject that you want to major in once you get to college.  Chances are, however, that it isn’t.  And chances are that, like m...

I don’t remember my first day of high school particularly well, but the one thing I do think back to is the first time I laid eyes on the senior girls. As they strode through the first floor hallways, they elicited awestruck gazes from underclassmen passersby. Unfortunately, they did not earn our attention...

The first day of freshman year I walked through the doors of the Bulldog Lobby shy, four feet 10-and-a-half inches tall and extremely sheltered. Four years later, I leave CHS a full inch-and-a-half taller (kinda) and just a tad bit wiser. Despite the height issue, high school has been an overall growing...

Many people who know I have a twin brother also know that he and I are very close. We are similar in many ways, have mutual friends and will be going voluntarily to the same school together for the next four years.

If I wrote down all of the lessons I have learned from CHS, my list would never end. So instead, I have picked the lesson I think is the most important one: always do the right thing. No matter how big or small, a good deed will never go unrewarded. Throughout your high school life, there will...

As my high school career comes to a close, I would like to reflect on the most embarrassing story of all time. I know you’re probably thinking it can’t be that bad, but I’m debating whether I should even tell this story as I continue to write this paragraph. Every year during soccer season,...
