The best way to have a great high school experience is to be involved. At Logan High, joining clubs is one of the easiest ways to get involved. On the 11th of September, sign-ups for all clubs began, There are many amazing clubs such as LEAF club and Key club. But the club that would love more people, the club where you can educate and be educated about one’s culture and have a blast is the Multicultural Club.
On the 13th of September, The Multicultural Club had their first meeting. As a member of The Multicultural Club since my freshman year, I want to say that we would love to have more people come to our meetings. We have meetings once a week on Wednesdays. We have potlucks and some days, an individual or a group presents about their culture. We have a president, a vice president, a historian and we can add as many positions as we deem necessary. We also have diversity week coming up, which begins in the third week of January on the 16th. We plan out fun activities for each day of the week. Last year we played music from different countries over the intercom on Tuesday, we served horchata on Wednesday, we held the Diversity Assembly on Thursday, and hosted a diversity dance on Friday. And fun fact, this club was created by the current superintendent.
I talked to Aeden Anbesse, last year’s Multicultural Club president. Her words on what the club is, “a gathering place for the diverse students from Logan High to come together and talk about concerns that they may have and genuinely share their culture with other people.”
She stated that prior to being involved in The Multicultural Club she thought she was, “well versed on world news,” but, “it wasn’t until I got more involved with the club and started talking to students from different countries that I got a broader perspective of conflict and political issues. All in all, Multicultural introduced me to a whole new side of LHS and gave me some of my best friends.”
Being involved is one of the best things at Logan High. Have a good time and sign up to be in The Multicultural Club. Sign-ups were in September, but you can still come in anytime, we meet on Wednesdays after school in Mr. Mudrow’s room. The advisor of Multicultural Club, Mr. Mudrow, says, “We want the whole school to join.” Don’t miss out, join The Multicultural Club.
