Congratulations to the CHS Student-Athlete of the Week (week of 12/12/2017):

Olivia King, freshman, CheerleadingOlivia was one of the first people to learn the cheer for our competition routine. She never complains even though she has been asked to switch her positions within our stunt groups multiple times within a few weeks. Olivia can always be heard yelling the cheer, even at the end of an exhausting practice. Olivia models leadership both in and out of practice. December 15.JPG
