SHS Community of Readers--Emily Bredberg, advisor

The students on the new Media Center Advisory Board meet virtually and in person to support the SHS Media Center.  One of their activities has been to compile a wish list of books to add to the collection; Members will vote to determine which titles will be purchased with the Alumni Association grant funds.  

 

Black History Club--Denise Satterfield, advisor

To heighten awareness of the history and achievements of African Americans, the Black History Club holds an annual assembly and sponsors a school-wide writing contest and art contest.  Grant funds will provide contest prizes and will  help offset the cost of t-shirts for club members.
