The introduction of a new principal, Dr. Christopher Jones, Whitman-Hanson High School has experienced many changes within the first months of the 2018-2019 school year. One of those being the introduction of many new and unique clubs.
To name a few, the Fashion Club, the Banned Book Club, and the World Cultures Club, are some of the new types of extracurricular activities provided to students. Whether it is putting their passion for design to the test or learning about cultural traditions, students are able to, as Jones stated, “find out more about themselves.”
Jones also believes that clubs are essential to a school’s culture.
“The more the better…, not only do they enrich the person that joins them, but also the people in it,” he said. “Take the Banned Book Club for example, members are able to learn from each other’s perspectives.”
In order to create a club, students must find a faculty advisor and a proposal to present to Dr. Jones.
“The kids from the Chess Club even sent me a PowerPoint on how to play!” Jones recalled.
“Choice is voice”, Jones concludes, “the choices we make help us spread and share our voice with others.”
