CMS Senior Stories

Ardrey Kell is proud to announce that two senior Knights, Luke Japaridze and David Kubala, have been featured in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Senior Stories.  This initiative celebrates great work of seniors across the district. Students with remarkable stories of achievement, perseverance and determination are featured from each campus in CMS. 

Luke Japaridze plays the upright bass and David Kubala is an Eagle Scout, but when their respective powers of game development and 3D animation combine, they form LucasGame Studios! These Ardrey Kell High School seniors are the epitome of what it means to be college and career ready, and we hope that all students are inspired to utilize the resources around them to start doing what they love today. Check out more of Luke and Dave's work at and meet even more members of the CMS Class of 2018 at
