GHS Club Week Brings Together Students with Shared Interests


Walking‌ ‌around‌ ‌Club‌ ‌Week‌ ‌and‌ ‌seeing‌ ‌all‌ ‌the‌ ‌welcoming‌ ‌environments‌ ‌each‌ ‌club‌ ‌has‌ ‌to‌ ‌offer,‌ ‌the‌ ‌chaos‌ ‌can‌ ‌make‌ ‌it‌ ‌challenging‌ ‌to‌ ‌visit‌ ‌everything.‌

“Honestly,‌ ‌one‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌reasons‌ ‌I‌ ‌am‌ ‌interested‌ ‌in‌ ‌some‌ ‌clubs‌ ‌over‌ ‌others,‌ ‌is‌ ‌because‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌free‌ ‌food‌ ‌they‌ ‌offer.‌ ‌It‌ ‌acts‌ ‌as‌ ‌an‌ ‌ice‌ ‌breaker‌ ‌to‌ ‌easily‌ ‌start‌ ‌a‌ ‌conversation‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌representatives‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌club,”‌ ‌Mason‌ ‌Barnes,‌ ‌a‌ ‌junior,‌ ‌added.‌ ‌

Fellowship‌ ‌Christian‌ ‌Athletes‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌very‌ ‌well‌ ‌known‌ ‌club‌ ‌that‌ ‌most‌ ‌students‌ ‌are‌ ‌drawn‌ ‌to.‌ ‌Senior Fiona‌ ‌Collard ‌has‌ ‌been‌ ‌the‌ ‌president‌ ‌of‌ ‌FCA‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌last‌ ‌two‌ ‌years.‌ ‌She‌ ‌used‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌a‌ ‌club‌ ‌member‌ ‌during‌ ‌her‌ ‌freshman‌ ‌year,‌ ‌but‌ ‌did‌ ‌not‌ ‌really‌ ‌enjoy‌ ‌it.‌ ‌

Thus,‌ ‌when‌ ‌she‌ ‌took‌ ‌over‌ ‌the‌ ‌club,‌ ‌she‌ ‌wanted‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌it‌ ‌more‌ ‌fun‌ ‌and‌ ‌enjoyable‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌students‌ ‌to‌ ‌learn‌ ‌about‌ ‌Jesus.‌ ‌She‌ ‌made‌ ‌sure‌ ‌each‌ ‌meeting‌ ‌was‌ ‌entertaining‌ ‌and‌ ‌served‌ ‌a‌ ‌purpose.‌ ‌She‌ ‌did‌ ‌this‌ ‌by‌ ‌having‌ ‌different‌ ‌adults‌ ‌come‌ ‌to‌ ‌speak‌ ‌about‌ ‌their‌ ‌faith‌ ‌and‌ ‌how‌ ‌their‌ ‌encounter‌ ‌with‌ ‌Christ‌ ‌changed‌ ‌their‌ ‌life.‌ ‌ ‌

Collard‌ ‌advised,‌ ‌“For‌ ‌newer‌ ‌clubs‌ ‌trying‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌a‌ ‌name‌ ‌for‌ ‌themselves,‌ ‌make‌ ‌sure‌ ‌you‌ ‌know‌ ‌what‌ ‌your‌ ‌club‌ ‌ambition‌ ‌is‌ ‌and‌ ‌also‌ ‌have‌ ‌food‌ ‌to‌ ‌offer‌ ‌because‌ ‌who‌ ‌doesn’t‌ ‌love‌ ‌food!”‌ ‌ ‌

Junior‌ ‌Jack‌ ‌Anderson‌ ‌stated,‌ ‌“The‌ ‌thing‌ ‌that‌ ‌grabs‌ ‌my‌ ‌attention‌ ‌from‌ ‌a‌ ‌club‌ ‌the‌ ‌most‌ ‌is‌ ‌what‌ ‌they‌ ‌represent‌ ‌and‌ ‌how‌ ‌they‌ ‌are‌ ‌beneficial‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌community.”‌ ‌ ‌

A‌ ‌new‌ ‌club‌ ‌on‌ ‌campus‌ ‌this‌ ‌year‌ ‌is‌ ‌the‌ ‌SAT/ACT‌ ‌prep‌ ‌club.‌ ‌Kerry‌ ‌Welsh‌ ‌and‌ ‌Morgan‌ ‌Hough‌ ‌are‌ ‌the‌ ‌senior‌ ‌co-presidents‌ ‌who‌ ‌started‌ ‌this‌ ‌club‌ ‌to‌ ‌help‌ ‌students‌ ‌who‌ ‌can’t‌ ‌afford‌ ‌to‌ ‌take‌ ‌expensive‌ ‌test‌ ‌prep‌ ‌classes.‌ ‌

Additionally,‌ ‌it‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌convenient‌ ‌way‌ ‌for‌ ‌students‌ ‌to‌ ‌study‌ ‌and‌ ‌get‌ ‌help‌ ‌from‌ ‌seniors‌ ‌that‌ ‌already‌ ‌know‌ ‌the‌ ‌material.‌ ‌ ‌

“I‌ ‌think‌ ‌using‌ ‌social‌ ‌media‌ ‌and‌ ‌flyers‌ ‌are‌ ‌a‌ ‌great‌ ‌way‌ ‌to‌ ‌promote‌ ‌any‌ ‌club‌ ‌because‌ ‌their‌ ‌information‌ ‌can‌ ‌spread‌ ‌through‌ ‌the‌ ‌entire‌ ‌school‌ ‌quickly,”‌ ‌said‌ ‌Kerry‌ ‌Welsh.‌ ‌ ‌
