A Junior at Coronado High School, Charly Montgomery is a member of CoSA's musical theatre program, an activist for anything artsy, and interested in everything. Her infectious spirit brings joy to those around her; close friend Mark Herrera agrees, "Charly always manages to make people smile with her friendliness and kindness." Miss Montgomery is poised to conquer: her energy and spunk can only help her as she tackles Senior year in 2014, and whatever other blocks may try to hold her back.
Why did you choose to go into CoSA's musical theatre department?
"I chose this department because theatre is something I've always been a part of and that I love to do."
Do you hope to continue in university?
"As far as college goes, I'm not completely sure what I want to major in yet. I'm pretty sure I won't be attending a conservatory because I have a ton of other interests as well."

What is your favorite class?
"My favorite class this year would be between AP Language and AP US History. I really enjoy learning about both! I also have incredible teachers this year."
Who is a teacher that has inspired you throughout your high school career?
"A teacher that has inspired me throughout high school would be my acting teacher, Kim [Strassburger]. She's the best!"
What is your biggest accomplishment from high school so far?
"Probably getting through swim weeks of freshman year [laughs]. Let's be honest."
How do you manage the stress of school?
"I don't really manage the stress too well at all because I stress out over everything naturally [laughs]. But I guess I try to go for a run or do something relaxing to clear my head before I start homework after school."
Are you a member of any clubs?
"I'm not a member of any clubs! Though I have been meaning to join one!"

What are you most looking forward to this year?
"This year I'm most looking forward to meeting new people and learning new things. Possibly joining a club for the first time...We'll see."
What are you most afraid of for Senior year?
"I'm most afraid of applying to college. It's also going to be really weird because almost all of my close friends are in the grade above me, so attending school without them isn't going to be too fun."
What does being an Islander mean to you?
"Being an Islander means to give your all in both academic and extracurricular activities."
