The mission of The Pony Express is to provide quality, thought-provoking student work focused on the events and issues that affect the CHHS community. As student writers, we try to reflect the thoughts of our most important readers – the students of CHHS. Because of this, we attempt to approach many issues, some more controversial than others. The newspaper staff hopes to inform, to educate, to entertain and to question for the betterment of CHHS, its students and faculty.

Because of COVID-19, The Pony Express switched from a print publication to a fully digital, online only publication for the 2020-2021 school year. We hope to resume printing for the 2021-2022 school year.

Adviser for The Pony Express is Ginny Shikle. Shelby Parsons, a senior, is serving a second year as editor for 2021-2022.
