CHS Student of the Week: Jackie Hites

    Student of the Week: Jackie Hites

    What is your Coronado story?

    I actually ended up in Coronado because of my sister. I was going into my 8th grade year when my mom and dad told me I was switching schools and moving to Coronado so that my sister could be in CoSA. I am now grateful to live in such a great community.

    What is your favorite part about Coronado High School?
    My favorite part about CHS are the school dances because I love to dress up. I also enjoy the teachers – I have never been to a school where the teachers have cared so much about their students and have really enjoyed their job.

    What are some of your current passions?
    One of my passions right now is playing on the CHS varsity tennis team. I couldn’t ask for better teammates. Another passion of mine is floral designing. I have worked at the Coronado Flower Lady now for 3 years and I love it.

    Where do you want to go to school next year?
    I am still figuring out what school would best fit, but I do enjoy floral design. One day, I would like to have my own flower shop!

    Any favorite spots around Coronado?
    My favorite spots around Coronado are any place with a tennis court and the Coronado Flower Lady – it’s great to see the community interacting with beautiful locations.

    What is your favorite memory so far from Coronado High School?
