Memorial is filled with unalike and compelling clubs that people can meet and talk to others with similar interests. One club at school, the Student Activist Union, offers a space to express feelings and address issues in the political world.

El Club Español

September 18, 2019

Memorial is not even a month into its second year and already the campus is buzzing with sport events, performances, clubs and other extracurricular activities. For some, joining clubs is a tedious must-have for decorated college resumes. For others, it’s a way to connect and meet other students who may not have come into your social circle otherwise. I was lucky enough to talk with Taveion Neasman, a sophomore who attends Memorial High School and is a member of the Spanish Club.   (Note: The Spanish club is for all students who attend Memorial and wish to expand upon their knowledge of the Spanish language and cultural differences.

Summer has ended, and in its place an already freshly served plate of homework, quizzes, tests, and if you’re in theatre, a new opportunity to showcase your talent in the form of a play.    The play in question is titled “Arsenic and Old Lace” and is expected to make its three-day debut in October. Students who find themselves interested in being part of the show shall find themselves disappointed, as auditions are no longer taking place.
