November Meeting: November 6, 2018

This Month’s Meeting:

This month the club hosted Eric Roberts, a Guidance Counselor and Chair of the Guidance Department at Parkland High School. Roberts also described his career in counseling and his work mainly with student athletes. He stressed how important it is for students to not only be athletically talented, but also academically strong, especially when it comes to scholarship offers. Roberts also mentioned how hard it is to be a sports coach at Parkland, due to the large amounts of students that come out for sports and having to cut a majority of them. He talked about how the diversity and size of Parkland High School is increasing more every year. There is currently 3,250 students attending the high school. He also mentioned that there are 152 electives available to the students of Parkland High School. Roberts  explained how hard it is to be a student athlete at Parkland and trying to balance everything to be successful not only athletically, but also academically. He said how much he has loved getting to know the students and is so grateful for the relationships that have formed.

The secretary and treasury reports were given and approved

Sam talked about the successful Dine and Donate at P.J. Whelihan's and how announcing at the games really helped bring people out. The Christmas Party will held on December 6th at Iron Lakes.
