Dear Islanders,

One hundred years. A century of excellence in academics, theatre, athletics, art, NJROTC, dance, digital media, and everything in between. To celebrate this century of brilliance both inside and outside the classrooms at CHS, my goal for this year is to showcase the myriad of different talents we have within our community.

I, Lauren McBride, am humbled to be this year’s ASB president, and I can’t wait to see what this year has in store. My interest in ASB began during my freshman year when I held float building at my house and made countless connections in the two weeks it occurred. I watched as people with opposing hobbies came together for a common purpose: to help out their class. Over power tools, spray glue, and Doritos, I made bonds with my classmates that will last forever.

After being an appointee in ASB my sophomore year, I got to see even more of CHS’s diverse student body and found my passion in student government. I was elected junior class president and had the privilege of planning Prom with my hardworking cabinet: James Harbaugh, Emily Breay, and Xander Norman.

Though I truly adore planning major school events like Prom and Homecoming, my favorite events to be a part of are those that embody the talents and passions of CHS’s students. This year, ASB plans to host more events like Open Mic Night and a talent show in which students can showcase all the incredible things they are interested in outside of school. We will be incorporating the ideas of TRIBE throughout the school year in order to celebrate the students at CHS, and we hope to appreciate students for their contributions in categories ranging beyond just academics.

There is no better way to spend my last year here at CHS than by giving back to the school that has given me an amazing high school experience. Here’s to 100 years of excellence—Let’s bring on 100 more.

Lauren McBride

ASB President
