Holiday Decorations Enliven Webb

As Webb students depart from campus to enjoy the rest of the holiday season, it provides the perfect time to look back and see how Webb decorated their spaces to celebrate this festive season. 

This year, the Price Dining Hall is displaying a gorgeous, 20-foot Christmas tree, beautifully lit and decorated. Lighting up the Christmas trees with various colorful ornaments, Webb’s community service afternoon activity contributed greatly to the setup and assembling of the artificial tree. “It was very fun to set up the tree and bring holiday cheer!” Frannie Hinch (‘25) said. For many others, decorating the campus for community service has been rewarding to see the joy they bring to students, faculty, and staff.

Sydney Morales, Social Media Manager
The iconic In-N-Out is where most Californians might find sanctuary in double-doubles and animal style fries. However, local boarder, Sydney Morales ('25) cannot stand this fast food emporium. Instead of chain restaurants, Sydney finds solace in home-cooked meals and local markets, particularly her dad's enchiladas. Coming from a loving family, many of Sydney’s interests are geared toward family and community. For example, she revels in being away from her phone, especially when she and her family summer in Lake Tahoe. When not in the community, Sydney enjoys watching Modern Family and listening to British rap. Recently, Sydney’s favorite class, Advanced Culture Studies and Politics at the Border, has been discussing the politics surrounding the Mexican-American border, an influential topic in her day-to-day life. Sydney's sense of community, open-mindedness, and inclination to embrace differences are crucial to understanding the way she views the world. She relies on her emotions to shape her perspectives in life, often avoiding the most straightforward path Already an established leader on campus, dorm prefect at Jones and head of the student leader's council, Sydney plans to bring more communication to the WCC this year, going out of her comfort zone and bringing her ideology of embracing difference.  Favorite Song: "Upside Down" by Jack Johnson
Gianna Darden, Staff Writer
Gianna Darden (‘26), exudes the charm and radiant smile of a bunny. Although friends may compare Gianna to a bunny, she embodies more traits of an owl. Not only are owls Gianna’s favorite animal, but they guide her star sign, Sagittarius. Sagittarius are most known for being ambitious and passionate. Gianna demonstrates these traits through her dedication to women's rights. In fact, she is driven to make a change in feminine products being affordable for everyone. According to Sagittarius Traits, Sagittarius are also known for “cherishing family ties.” Gianna's closeness with her family enabled her to adopt her passion for women's rights. One of Gianna's favorite activities is eating dinner with her family and discussing controversial topics, like choosing DC over Marvel. Gianna also enjoys being in nature. Like owls, Gianna relishes being surrounded by nature. According to Sagittarius Spirit Animals owls are known for being “clear-sighted and having a different view of the world.” This year, Gianna hopes to bring different perspectives to the Webb Canyon Chronicle to discuss important, controversial, and funny topics with the Webb Community.  Favorite Song: "Baby Doll" by Dominic Fike
Kristine Bisgaard, Staff Writer
With a kind smile and calming voice, Kristine Bisgaard (‘25) is the embodiment of the Danish concept of “hygge: a word that cannot be directly translated into English but roughly means an atmosphere of comfort, coziness, and connection between people. Hailing from Denmark although she has moved around the world since she was seven years old, going from Northern Europe to the Bay Area, and now Claremont Kristine is no stranger to frequent change. Even her introduction to Webb was more sudden than most, as she simultaneously entered boarding school and the Webb Canyon Chronicle as a new junior. Despite the inevitable obstacles, Kristine has welcomed every opportunity to explore her new community with an open mind and easygoing personality. This year, Kristine looks forward to continuing to watch her favorite Danish TV shows, making new friends in her “home away from home,” and learning how to utilize journalism to make her own unique contribution to the Webb community by serving as a bridge between academic and social life. From embracing the creative freedom that Honors Studio Art offers to playing her best as a varsity tennis athlete, Kristine will no doubt delicately balance the rigor that Webb encourages with her love of “hygge and spending time with the people she cares about.  Favorite Song: "Ticking" by Zach Bryan
