This week’s senior spotlight is on Jeffrey Phillips. Jeffrey currently carries a GPA of 4.23, has challenged himself every year with many honors and AP courses, and has taken numerous computer and technical classes. He will qualify for all four diplomas upon graduation.

Jeffrey likes to draw and paint, enjoys playing piano and likes to travel. His part-time job at an auction house keeps him busy on weekends. Being technically minded, Jeffrey loves to tinker with computers and other technology. He’s currently putting in hours at Computer Corps learning how to build a computer. He will then donate the computer to a family who needs one.

Jeffrey plans on attending UNR next year. His technical skills are going to be put to good use as he plans on majoring in mechanical engineering. Please join me in congratulating Jeffrey on a job well done. We wish him the best of luck in his future.

Angila Golik is a government teacher at CHS and a member of Senator Pride.
