Erin Been

A concert hosted by the Carson High School Concert Choir will be 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Carson City Community Center.

Also featured will be the Toccata Orchestra, and soloists Emzy Burroughs, Adam Machart, Stephanie Arrigotti and Maria Arrigotti.

Tickets are available at the door. $15 general admission and $10 for students and seniors.


This week, CHS would like to spotlight senior Lisa Yamamoto. She has a full class load with AP calculus, AP biology, AP Government, AP senior literature and ceramics II.

She maintains a weighted grade point of 4.6.

She is undecided about which college she would like to attend, but her top three choices are University of Oregon, Linfield College or Oregon State. She plans on majoring in biology with aspirations of becoming a physical therapist.

At CHS, Lisa has played softball and varsity basketball throughout her high school career. Lisa is also part of the judicial board, and part of National Honor Society for the past three years.

Outside of school, her activities include volunteering with Food for Thought and at her church. We are proud to have Lisa at CHS.


The CHS Common Scholarship application can now be downloaded from under the “guidance” tab then click on “forms.” The due date is Jan. 21.

PTSA College Night will be 7 p.m. Jan. 11 in the CHS library.

Presentations will be held by representatives from TMCC, WNC, Sierra Nevada College and UNR on topics including financial aid, scholarships and admissions.

Recent CHS graduates currently in college will be discussing their college experiences. We invite everyone to come and get some valuable information.


From all of us here at CHS, we want to thank you for your support and wish you a safe and love-filled winter break. See you on Jan. 3!
