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.

Alex

Teacher and Student Video Team Lead

Hi I’m Alex, I am a Senior and I love technology, watching footbalI, playing guitar and am also in NHS. I first got interested in technology when my oldest brother would always come home with the newest phone or newest laptop, so I was always surrounded by gadgets and what not. It inspired my love for computers that continue to this day, so when I heard about the Chrome Squad I knew it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.

Teacher and Student Blog Writer

Hey there! I’m Britni, although, some of my friends call me Ms. Positivity.  I am a junior, and my favorite subjects in school include Animation, Art, English, and, of course, C4L!  In my free time, I am usually working on any homework, drawing and sketching, DIY projects, or hanging out with friends or family.  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, my name is Devon Brawner and i am a Junior at RCHS. I am apart of the Royse City Bulldogs Varsity Baseball team and am also apart of the Chrome Squad. 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. If you ever see me in the hallway or in the C4L Lounge, don’t be afraid to ask a question or even just say hi.

Connect Store Team Lead

Hi!  My name is Jake.  I’m a Senior at RCHS.  My sister is so much cooler than me.  I’m a member of the RCHS debate team, where I spend my time owning noobs in heated debates.  My favorite debate topics include “should Kanye run for president,” or “are iPhones really superior (I love Apple).”  I work for C4L, which I think stands for “Computers 4 Lyfe.”  I’m also a member of NHS, National Handbag Society.  Ask me about my Dolce and Gabbana clutch.  People rate my awesomeness on the “Richter Scale.”  I’m the coolest.

I enjoy creative writing such as short stories and poetry. This year is my first year taking an art class, which I am super excited about because I have always adored art. As you know, I am a member of C4L, which is why I’d like to let you know that I am here for you, so if you have any questions, concerns, or just want to talk I am always available.

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.
