Leo Club: A king in community service

Leo Club has a roaring good time helping the community.

The club meets every Friday in G05 to discuss the events for the week. Math Teacher Vicki Burrell advises the Leo Club. She has hosted club meetings for 2 years and is enthusiastic about its mission.

“This is a great club,” she said. “It’s a great club because they help the community. … The thing I like about it is it’s student driven. Whatever you want to do gets done.”

Students also enjoyed Leo Club.

“I really like it,” said Elle Beskeen, a senior and club member. “I like how they get into the community and help people. I just think it’s fun.”

“Community service, it’s what we’re all about,” said Sarah Bennan, Leo Club president and a senior. “The Leo Club is a service organization branched off of the national Lions Club.”

Brennan and Vice-President Adriana Moses, a senior, have several club events planned.

“We often do a road clean up in the mornings on Saturday,” said Brennan. “We’re starting a new program, the Scotten Reading program. … We’ll be helping first-  and third-graders improve their literacy skills.”

The events we put on as a club are always going to serve a purpose greater than us: helping families and individuals in need, making our community more enjoyable, or supporting local organizations,” said Moses. “Not to mention we usually have fun doing whatever is it we’re helping with.”

Students expressed the benefits of being a member.

“(It is) a lot of help for youth to reach their potential in the community,” said Brennan. “The Leo Club is just another way to get the youth involved.”

“I think that Leo Club is a great club,” said Moses. “The Leo Club community as a whole is also really strong. You can find Leos anywhere you go and are able to make connections through that. I love that it’s an organization devoted to serving other people while simultaneously giving leadership and learning opportunities to its members.”

Moses feels there is great energy within the club.

“The environment of our club is generally a pretty positive one,” she said. “Everyone is there because they want to be involved in community service.”
