Club Rush helps Tigard students get involved

By Sydney White, Staff Writer

Dismissed from class early on Wednesday Sept. 18, Tigard High School students were sent to the main gym for club rush. Each year, club officers and advisers participate in rush to recruit new members. Joining clubs give students, new and old, a chance to become involved with the school and community.

Clubs such as S.T.U.D.D. (Stop Tigard Underage Drinking and Drugs), Young Life, and Key Club promote their groups as extracurricular activities that are fun and help them stand out on applications. Clubs are also a great way to meet new people and get involved, they are open to all students.

“I’m signing up for Key Club and Young Life because it will help me with community service,” said freshman Natasha Mendoza, “and Young Life seems really fun.”

After making their way through the crowds surrounding the booths, students signed up for the clubs by writing down their name, email and phone number. They were also informed about the first meeting or event.

“I want to be more involved with the community as well as my faith,” said Sophomore Emma Watson.

Clubs are a great way to have fun at school and have something to look forward to.  Some clubs available are for having fun while others serve that purpose but also give back to the community.
