I have had the pleasure of having Jared Berklee in my advisory the past four years…watching him grow from a young and curious freshman into a compassionate, hard-working leader. I have no doubt Jared will leave a positive mark on the world.

Interested in pursuing business management with the hopes of going into the marketing and advertising field, Jared will attend Tulane in the fall.

Over the years, Jared has been very active in BBYO. This organization provides Jewish teens a place to enrich their identities, as well as participate in leadership development experiences. His passion for BBYO led him to a leadership role, including serving on the planning committee for the International Convention of BBYO in Orlando.

In addition to Jared’s passion about BBYO, he also participates in Cape Henry’s, “Step-Up” team and finds the time to play soccer on Cape Henry’s varsity team, this year capping his playing career with a Division I state championship. Jared is also a member of the National Honor Society and has maintained a stellar academic record with a rigorous course load that includes four AP and two honors level courses.

Jared also enjoys all things outdoors and is an avid boater and fisherman. He takes advantage of all that living by the ocean provides. His peers describe him as fun and easygoing, but serious when it comes to his studies.

I’m so proud of all he has accomplished at CHC.
