The Optimist

Chris Forrester
Chris is a new member of the Optimist staff for the 2016-17 school year and is excited to be a part of the team. He is a figure skater, senior leader of PROUD, social justice advocate, part-time artist, full-time social media mogul, and Beyonce lover. When he's not in school he enjoys sleeping, napping, dozing, and snoozing, as well as continuing his ongoing quest to hug as many dogs as he possibly can.
