Meet the Chrome Squad
The Chrome Squad Story
Someone asking me to talk about the success of the Chrome Squad feels like being asked to not just tell your life story but the life story of your parents as well. What I mean is the Chrome Squad is less than a year old and is the product of not just my efforts, but of many others.

Hey there! I’m Britni, although, some of my friends call me Ms. Positivity. I am a senior, and my favorite subjects in school include, Art, English, and, of course, C4L! Every day after school, I attend my job at the district’s after school daycare program, working with little kids. On the weekends, my friends and I go to church and worship, hang out within our Bible study, and, sometimes, volunteer in the ministry. Whenever anyone needs help, I am always here! If you have a question for me, and I don’t know the answer right away, I can safely say I will do my best to get that answer to you as soon as I possibly can. I look forward to becoming closer with the rest of the Chrome Squad and helping any and everybody with any questions they may have!

Hi I’m Chloe and this year I’m a sophomore. This is my first year in the Chrome Squad and I’m on the inventory team. My whole life music has been a major thing, and I’m on the tenor line in the percussion section. This is also my second year on the line. I also love to help out in the community in any way I can. All my life I’ve been around computers and technology at home though my dad’s work, so since I found out about the chrome squad I’ve been eager to be on it. I love to help people so if you ever need anything don’t be afraid to come and ask for help! I’m excited to help you all and I can’t wait to meet all of you this school year!

My Passion for technology started when i was in third grade when my father brought home a new Blackberry phone. I had never seen a phone with games that you could play on it and there was an instant curiosity that started in me thus providing my passion for tech.

My name is Maggie, and I am a Senior at RCHS. I am involved in a bunch of organizations such as NHS, yearbook, student council, swim, and Spanish-NHS. Dogs are the reason I wake up in the morning. When I’m not busy petting dogs or drowning in homework, I enjoy watching Netflix and napping for hours on end. The other thirty percent of my time is most likely spent looking through clothing racks due to my shopaholic lifestyle. The Chrome Squad is an amazing place for me to learn more about technology while helping others.
