LHS clubs offer variety
By Madison Hood
LHS clubs have elected officers and are getting ready organized with fundraisers and activities
Future Famers of America (FFA) officers for 2014-15 are Andrew Kielak as president, Gracie Little as vice president, Hayden Ketchum as secretary, Bret Colberg as treasurer, Bryant Doyle as parliamentarian, Sami Guidotti as reporter, Sam Hall-Fenstermaker as historian and Jade Leddy as sentinel. This club promotes the future of farming in America
Upcoming activities they have planned are the UC Davis field trip on Oct. 10, Shasta Field Day on Oct. 16, Advanced Leadership academy (ALA) and Made for Excellence (MFE) and Nationals conference from Oct. 29 to Nov. 4.
One of the fundraisers for FFA is the cookbook, organized by Colberg, Doyle, and Laural Colberg. Cookbooks will be sold before Thanksgiving and Christmas, and members are hoping to raise about $2,000.
California Scholarship Federation is an organization that recognizes students who achieve in academic subjects. CSF officers are Bella Campbell as president, Jonathan Cabrera and Ali Bennet as co-vice presidents, Sami Guidotti as secretary and Hayden Ketchum as treasurer.
CSF offers peer tutoring every Wednesday from 3 to 4 p.m. in room 100.
Students can become a member after their first semester in their sophomore year if they achieve the CSF 10 points required. If they achieve four more semesters of membership, including one in their senior year, they can qualify for gold graduation honors.
Drama Club officers are Gavin Whitley as president, Sage Sayers as vice president, Sam Hall-Fenstermaker as secretary, Kylie McGee as treasurer and Gracie Little as historian.
They will start having meetings hopefully in November after school and might have activities, but they aren’t sure yet. This club exists so as to promote theater events and collect funds for drama expenses.
Culture Club officers are Sage Sayers and Bella Campbell as president, Rachel Peterman as vice president, Bryant Doyle as secretary, Edgar Baeza as treasurer and Grace Meschery as historian. One activity this year will be Oscar Night when students dress up as actors and actresses and watch the Oscar Awards on television. This event is a fundraiser. The Culture Club will also sell t-shirts.
Advisor Megan Meschery said that students of Loyalton High are isolated, so this club tries to get kids out to try different things to expose them to a richer cultural environment and to give them an urban experience so as not be scared of city life.
