Douglas High School's most popular extracurricular activities are marching band, sports, and speech and debate. I would highly recommend joining the National Honors Society, as this program allows students to help others within the community and grow more as a leader. We need more people who can assist and guide others into the right direction, which additionally is why speech and debate is another beneficial activity to join. It is highly important that the youth fully expresses their ideas in the pursuance of changing the world for the better, or even, the community. What greater opportunity is there to learn how to hone our speaking skills and prove to others that our opinions are worth consideration. Furthermore, we can showcase our talents not only through intellectual simulations, but also through athletic performance. Sports allow us to learn what discipline is, learn what drives our determination,and learn which individuals motivate and inspire us to continue challenging ourselves. Overall, Douglas High School has great extracurricular activities that allow us to further understand our identity.
