Chapel’s range of activities demonstrates a good balance of class work, school governance, community (YMCA),
sports (soccer), and social justice work.
She served in CHS student government for four years and is politically engaged in the community, was a leader on the first-ever CHS literary magazine, and was active in mentoring 9th graders as a leader on the Link Crew.
One teacher commented that, while Chapel recognizes the inequities in the world
and feels strongly about them, she is capable of listening well to the stories and concerns of others.
Chapel has successfully applied for a scholarship from The New School in New York. CHSAA has awarded Chapel $2,000 to help reduce college debt. In college at The New School, Chapel plans to focus on education with a minor in film and has already made a film for the South End Stories’ film festival. It is her goal to support through film the racism work of educators and students of color. This career tracks with her community actions for social justice.
We wish Chapel good luck and success on her journey toward bettering the world for all.
