CCHS Chess Club on the TODAY Show

Chess Club rocked it on The Today Show on Thursday, May 18, 2023  (today!) as the 80-strong lunchtime club was featured in a morning news segment on the increasing popularity of chess among young people: School of Rook.

The national news coverage is a result of CCHS Junior Jonathan Kim’s LA Times High School Insider column: Chess Fever Has Arrived at Culver High School. Congratulations to Jonathan for generating the coverage, to Chess Club President Ian Fogel for handily defeating correspondent Jacob Soboroff, to advisor Craig Wisner for giving up your lunch hour to coach these students, and to the entire club for sharing your passion, camaraderie, and spirit.

You all rook! #culverpride
