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.

Sara Pettay is one of our many outstanding seniors at Carson High. As a Jump Start student at Western Nevada College on track to receive her Associate in Science degree in May, just before receiving her CHS diploma, Sara has proven she is ready to succeed in college and career. Sara credits her family with her success up to this point. She reports her parents and 2 brothers provide tremendous support and guidance.
Sara has focused on academics throughout her education believing that the harder she pushed herself, the more likely success would follow and opportunities would open up. Before enrolling in the dual credit program in her Junior year, Sara enjoyed her role as a cheerleader and the volunteer projects they performed. Additionally, she volunteered with Stagecoach Bingo at the Community Center.
Sara’s focus definitely paid off as she is currently ranked 1st in class along with 3 others who have maintained an unweighted GPA of 4.0, and has earned a 4.82 weighted GPA. Sara has made the Dean’s list at WNC each semester and is soon to receive her 3rd Academic Award at CHS.
When asked about future plans, Sara shares that she is plans to have a career in Engineering. Her first choices for continuing her education are UNR and Montana State University Bozeman but is also completing the Common App to see what opportunities may arise through this program which offers connections to over 1,000 colleges worldwide.
Join us in wishing her great adventures and success.
