CCHS grads return for senior luncheon
The annual graduate luncheon was held on Wednesday, January 8th for CCHS seniors and CCHS graduates to talk about the college experience. The luncheon is held each year for seniors to talk with graduates about their experiences in college. This year, graduates Jakob Morris ('19), Alyssa Barnes ('19), Tyler Ferron ('19), and Ce'Nedra Cordova ('17) attended along with 12 seniors, the luncheon with Subway sandwiches, was provided by the counseling department. Seniors get a chance to ask questions and learn from the recent graduates and their experiences. "It's a casual time that seniors get to hear from graduates and gain knowledge from them about their time in college," said CCHS counselor, Troy Bomgardner. "It is really valuable for our seniors to get new information and encouragement from students they know and may even have had a class together as high school students."
