Varsity Club aims to give back to the community

Return of a club that provides service to the community
Maddy Brazier
Students decorated a bulletin board in sophomore hallway with athletes from the varsity girls soccer team for earning the title of Athlete of the Week. Jayden Harvell, Reese McPherson, Cassidy Carlisle, Lucy Cheney, Marion Young and Jorja Maynard get special recognition for their commitment to the defense on their team.

After a hiatus, Varsity Club has returned. It is an organization of student athletes who want to give back to their community.  There are about 40 students that help with the Varsity Club. “One of our newer projects is collecting snack items for kids in need at Mapleton Elementary School,” adviser Senora Mortland said. “And one of our newest projects in the works is building care packages and sending them to the graduated students of PIHS who joined the military.”

“I joined Varsity Club because I wanted to be a part of a club that focuses on good causes,” Reagen Deschene ’24 said. “I find it great that so many other people who joined the club also find it important to help out our community.”

Varsity Club helps out in the community when it is needed. “This club started to give kids an outlet for doing projects for their communities together,” Mortland said. “The togetherness gets these students closer and more tight knit.”

To join this club, there is an application students can pick up from the Senora Mortland. The club has a meeting once every month, but they communicate through emails and Google Classroom. The next meeting is on November 28, 2023
