Bolt of Blue Literary Magazine

Attention all Writers! Are you tired of having too much teenage angst that your parents and teachers just don’t understand? Well, let US give you the outlet you deserve. Mrs. Pugh’s Advanced Creative Writing class is publishing Carson High’s first ever Literary Magazine, Bolt of Blue! From February 1st to February 29th, you can bring in a hard copy of your poems, non-fiction, and fiction pieces to room 306 or the Library. Spill all your complicated feelings and let everyone know that it is, in fact, not a phase. Or submit a piece that makes your mood fly high, and puts you at the top of the world. YOU are the writer and make the rules to your piece. Click the Bolt Of Blue link below for more information!

Senior in the Spotlight


This week’s senior in the spotlight is Gabriela (Gaby) Avina. Gaby maintains a 4.7 weighted GPA, and is currently taking a course load of Honors and AP courses. Gaby has been extremely involved in extracurricular activities at CHS; she is currently an officer for National Honor Society, was the Editor in Chief of the high school yearbook and newspaper, was the manager for varsity soccer, and participated in volleyball for two years. Gaby is enrolled in the Greater Nevada Financial Literacy class where she learns customer service and financial literacy skills, as well as basic banking program skills. She has volunteered extensively in her community through work with her church, St. Teresa of Avila, and as a function of her role in National Honor Society, GNCU, and simply as a participating member of the community. Lastly, she has worked as a Recreation Youth Aide for Carson City Parks and Recreation for almost two years. Aside from her commitments at the high school, she is also a member of the Community of Bilingual English-Spanish Speakers (CBESS). CBESS is program through UNR that offers an opportunity for bilingual students in Northern Nevada who are interested in entering the medical field to gain experience and an understanding of what their future career will look like. Out of 150 applicants in Northern Nevada, only 30 were accepted. Always seeking to better the lives of those around her, Gaby has created a mentorship program for middle school students to help them with the transition to high school.

Gaby plans to attend the University of Nevada, Reno where she would like to major in Psychology.Carson High loves the energy and positive attitude that Gaby brings to our school. We wish her luck in her future endeavors.
