Carlisle Reviews

1 review
Carlisle is more than a community, it is a family. The support our town has for one another is like no other. On the road or on our home field our sports fans follow their mighty Bison. Homecoming is huge in Carlisle. This past homecoming I was honored by being crowned the 2016 CHS Homecoming queen. I am a third generation queen. During this event alumni poor in from all over the U.S. each year. I know no matter where life takes me, I will never forget Carlisle. I am who I am because of this community, I am who I am because of my family.
