Picture this: it’s an early Monday morning. You had a long weekend filled with sports, family time, and hanging out with friends. And to top it all off, you stayed up till three in the morning studying for three tests today. To say you’re tired would be an understatement. Nothing can make the day better. You will remain in this state of misery till your tests are finished. But wait, you must’ve forgotten about Chatham High School’s pastry selection! Your day has suddenly been made.
Every morning the cafeteria staff lines up a delicious array of donuts, cinnamon buns, croissants, and other baked goods. The heat lamp that towers over them creates the perfect temperature, allowing the sweet dough to melt in your mouth. If you haven’t already tried them, it is not too late! The sweet pastries are waiting for you in their convenient location at the center of the school: the cafeteria. Just pop into the back of the cafeteria, select your pastry of choice, type in your lunch pin number or pay with cash, and enjoy. Pastries can turn any bad day around.
If you are still not convinced, listen to what Chatham High School’s top pastry customers have to say. Riley Allen, a junior at Chatham, claims she purchases a donut every morning. She plays basketball for the Chatham Girls Varsity team, and the cafeteria’s donuts provide her with the energy she needs to dominate on the court. They are a great source of energy. Although she is more of a morning pastry person, she is not opposed to eating them during lunch or even after school. Riley explains that they are “the perfect breakfast, snack, and lunch”. She thinks the best pastry at Chatham is the vanilla frosted donuts. While this may be a popular opinion, others have contrasting beliefs.
Olivia Shehadi, who is also a junior at Chatham, enjoys the cinnamon buns the most. She usually purchases one during study hall or lunch. She discovered them her freshman year and since then, she hasn’t gone back. Although the cinnamon buns are her favorite, she will occasionally opt for a glazed donut. She is open to trying other pastries, but she hasn’t built the courage to really branch out just yet.
The last student that the Chronicle interviewed was Cami McKenzie. Cami is a junior at Chatham and she swears on the croissants. No matter what the time of day is, she craves a croissant. She is a teammate of Riley’s and she too benefits from the pastries’ energy. She is not as open to trying other pastries as Olivia is. She takes pride in her love for croissants and she is not going to let a donut or cinnamon roll ruin that.
