CHS has a new award that honors staff members of the school. Staff members are nominated by fellow faculty and students, and are awarded on a quarterly basis. The first staff member of the quarter is custodian Ed Marshall. Ed is a very dedicated individual! He thinks of the overall appearance of the school. Ed responds promptly to meet any needs requested. He is one of those “behind the scenes” individuals that we would all be lost without. Ed is very kind to the kids and no matter what you need he will help you find it. Congratulations to Ed on receiving this award!
