Have you ever wondered why people go by a different name than what’s on their birth certificate? We asked SJHS students about their nickname. This lets other students in the school let them know what they are called, and what they like best. These students are all in 8th and 9th grade.

The first student is named Matthew McKade Child, a 9th grades, but goes by the name Kade. People call him this because “it is shorter for McKade”. Kade likes to be called this. The real reason why he is called this is because of his “beautiful mother”.
