Thank you to all those who submitted yearbooks to the CHS Library for the digitization project. We were able to send a near complete collection for 1950-1989 for scanning, but are still looking for yearbooks from 1950 and 1955. If you know of anyone who might have these copies, please spread the word.


One ticket was all it took. Tristan Holmes purchased ticket #106981 from CHS teacher Mr. Bullock, in support of his friend, Trenton, who participates in Special Olympics. Tristan now has a one in eight chance of being the owner of a new vehicle in the Drive it Home Raffle, a signature event of Special Olympics Missouri.

The winner of a 2017 Honda Pilot Elite, donated by Missouri Automobile Dealers Association, will be selected at the Grand Prize Giveaway Event, taking place at the Zimmer Tailgate party before the last Mizzou home game on November 11.  If Tristan doesn’t win new wheels, he will automatically pocket $500!

Be a supporter of Special Olympics!


Drawing is what Vinnie loves to do most! She draws to clear her mind and, sometimes, “just to see what I can come up with, which usually results in an elephant masterpiece of some sort…” She plans to pursue a career as a physical therapy assistant and, although her future chosen profession may not contain art, she says “I will carry my passion for it with me wherever I go!”
