Student, Sanford H Calhoun High School, Class of 2016,
The National Honor Society is one of the most popular extracurricular activities at Calhoun. As this chapter's Co-president, I can safely say that all members involved enjoy serving their community in a variety of ways. Additionally, since most students are extremely academically successful, the NHS chapter boasts the majority of the senior class.
Glamour Gals is a club unique to Calhoun aimed to help local senior citizens. Members travel to numerous senior citizen centers in the area, providing the elderly with someone to talk to. Additionally, they do makeup and hair for seniors.
The drama program is one of the largest extracurricular activities at Calhoun. Stemming from the "On Tour Company," students from all grades celebrate the arts by pitching in to productions after school. Students work after school, often staying until 11:00 at night. Anyone interested in music, dance, singing, painting, electrical equipment, shop, etc., would enjoy the club.
I would recommend any extracurricular at Calhoun to new students. This is mainly because of the age old adage, "hindsight is 20/20." I was not extremely active in after school activities until 10th/ 11th grade... since then I have regretted not being as active as I should be. Students can find a club for almost any interest, and joining any of them would make their high school experience extremely fulfilling!
