I don’t think I’ve talked to anyone at CHS who looked forward to all-school convocations. In all my years at this school, I’ve gone through the motions time after time—suddenly you find yourself shuffling slowly along with the crowd, attempting to fit 5,000-plus people through a four-person-wide ...
