At CCHS, there are a wide variety of clubs and activities, including the National English Honor Society (NEHS), which has launched it’s own literary magazine where students can submit their own writing and work.
The website is meant for students to have “the opportunity to be recognized in a form that can be displayed to the entirety of the student body.” Different from a normal website, the Cowpoke isn’t run by the school, it’s run by students.
Nicole Nadler collaborated with NEHS to bring this literary magazine to life.
“I put it together in coalition for NEHS and created the website via Wix and the email from Gmail to create the Cowpoke’s functioning system,” NEHS Secretary Nicole Nadler said.
In order to submit their own work, students have to contact the email found on the Cowpoke website.
“It works when students send in their submissions to the email account, then get looked at upon further review, then uploaded,” Nadler said.
The name Cowpoke came from a synonym for cowboy, since the CCHS mascot is a Cowboy, Nadler said.
Dylan Bober is also the co-president of NEHS and also helped out with the Cowpoke.
“The CCHS Cowpoke is a literary magazine that publishes student essays and other literary works,” Bober said. “I hope it’ll give students a great space for free expression.”
The cowpoke has had about 10 submissions from students interested in having their work put on the literary magazine.
Shyelle Ben-Simon is the president of Book Club and is the creator of LeTimes eNewspaper. She submitted a collage to the Cowpoke.
“I’m thankful for the platform The Cowpoke has given me to share my art and express my thoughts,” Ben-Simon said. “It feels good having it be recognized by people at school and I think Cowpoke will encourage other students at our school to share their own works as well.”
