East senior Jailene Rodriguez has earned national recognition for a photograph featured in the East High School yearbook, "The Quill." Her photograph from a Scarlets football game earned a spot in Herff Jones’ 2014 volume of "Ideas That Fly," a publication that recognizes the top yearbook covers, designs, coverage, and photography from across the country. Congratulations to Jailene, faculty adviser Natalie Niemeyer and the entire staff of The Quill for their great work at East High.
Cowabunga! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are making a comeback to the silver screen. And filling the shell of the blue-bandana’d, katana-wielding lead role – Leonardo – is former St. Charles East High School football star Pete Ploszek.
