My name is Lukas Sangasy, and I am an 8th grader at Costa Mesa Middle School. I admire creativity and writing stories that I feel deserve to be shared among others. I like to swim, play Catch Football, draw, play video games, and to write/visualize fictional narratives. 


Lilli Kaehler

Staff Writer

Hi! Nice to meet ya! I’m Lilli Kaehler, a writer for the CMHS.News website. I write about stuff going on in the different media and entertainment industries. When not doing so, I’m usually kicking back drawing and listening to music or play games. It all depends on my ever-changing mood.


Jason Strotman

Hi, I’m Jason Strotman. When I am not writing, I enjoy acting or playing video games online. I'm excited to join the Hitching Post staff and look forward to helping build a quality publication.


Joakim Tysor

I love sports especially basketball whether it be playing, watching, or writing about it. Another thing I really like writing about is school events whether it be for ASB or for sporting events.
