Our class focuses on using a range of technology tools for varied purposes such as creating and maintaining an up-to-date “student friendly” CHS webpage that includes a news broadcast, video stories and highlights, announcements, student polls, and other interactive features. The overarching goal of the class is to empower students in a transformative learning environment. Our mission is to inform and entertain.

This week’s Senior in the Spotlight is Mr. Jacob Xie. Jake is an incredible student. He is disciplined, hardworking, and driven. He pushes himself in all classes to work hard, and is often a leader in exploring new content and ideas. He does so while still helping others, and in a way that is humble, kind, and full of acceptance. It is often said by peers that he makes them feel like they can accomplish things which they are unsure of because he is so welcoming. Jake never compares himself to others in a traditional sense, and this is the secret to his academic success. He currently has a 4.95 GPA, is an AP Capstone Diploma Candidate, and has completed every available AP course he could.
Beyond academics, Jake is a gifted musician. When Jake is playing the saxophone, he is magnetic- the whole school is quiet when his solo plays during morning Jazz Band performances. Jake has also taken it upon himself to create a jazz band in Reno with young people from other high schools, and his ability to bring people together to make the world a better place is evident in his creation of this band.
Jake plans to study computer science while also maintaining his involvement in music during college. While applying to many places, Jake hopes to attend the University of Nevada, Reno because of its’ exceptional science programs and Tier 1 university status. Jake hopes to find a place where computer science, art and engineering meet. CHS is grateful to Jake for all of his dedication and time given to the school community, and we look forward to cheering him on in his next amazing chapter.
