About the Series
There are so many inspiring stories at CH-CH, and as a member of the community we have the opportunity to hear them regularly, whether it's through a conversation in the Charger Cafe or at a Senior Presentation. The aim for the Rewrite Your Story series is to give those beyond our immediate community the chance to hear these stories that have moved so many of us.
The first installment of the Rewrite Your Story series focuses on five students who are taking bold steps to accomplish their goals. Make sure to click on the stories below to read more and see their individual video story.
