Wiregrass Ranch held their annual Club Showcase on September 5th for students to get more information on new clubs and ones that they would like to join. Students were able to go the gym during their lunches and talk to current club members about requirements for each club.

Wiregrass offers a wide variety of clubs for different areas of interest, and the majority of them were present at the Club Showcase to explain their club’s mission. Some clubs such as Student Council and SADD club require students to turn in applications in order to become a part of the club.

This year, several new clubs such as the Political Debate club, P.A.W.S, and Random Acts of Kindness attended the showcase for the first time. Like the rest, they had their own tables set up with all of their information on paper or on poster boards to gain new members. Most clubs had set up a remind for students to join as an easy way to communicate and sign up.

“The club showcase is very important because students need to be engaged and it’s important for them to have something besides academics that interests them,” Assistant Principal Diamela Vergne explained.

For instance, the Project Hope club is running a relief drive for those that were affected by Hurricane Dorian.

Sophomore Olivia Marshall, President of Project Hope, explains that their goal is to “help out wherever and whenever they can in the community.”

Another club option, Fandom club, is a place for students to discuss and celebrate different fictional worlds together as a fandom community.

“It’s a fun club to just chill back and relax,” Club member Zoe Koebell explained. “Everyone will find something they will like, whether it be K-pop, Harry Potter, Star Wars, or something else.”

The Stampede went live on twitter at the club showcase, showing just how crowded the event was and the various booths around the gym.

“I joined three clubs because of the club showcase,” Senior Kylee Ehman said. “It seemed like it was a successful event.”
