Language has been among a plethora of clubs to choose from at Southmoreland High School. The Spanish Club and French Club prove to be popular clubs that most of the students participate in if they take a language class.
Formerly run Mrs. Victoria Brodak, the French Club was without an organizer since she was relocated to teach at the Southmoreland Elementary School. Fortunately, senior Morgan Brown decided that instead of letting the French Club fade away, she would run it herself.
With Mrs. Bethany Eutsey as the sponsor, Brown is the only student running the club. Brown talks highly of Mrs. Eutsey and how grateful she is to have a teacher willing to help make the French Club happen.
“Without her, our club would have not been approved through the school,” Brown said. “She helps in various things like helping to decide upcoming events, finding fundraisers, manning meetings, and communicating with the students. I am truly, truly thankful for everything she does.”
Though there is no official vice president, secretary, treasurer, etc., Brown looks to fellow club members who are experienced with the French Club for aid if needed.
Brown comments on factors that drove her to take over the French Club.
“I felt like various things weren’t going right this year and I wanted at least one of them to be a positive thing that happened” Brown said. “ Also, I really missed our previous French teacher Mrs. Brodak, who got moved to the middle school, and through the club was a way to feel a connection with the teacher us students loved, even though she doesn’t teach us anymore.”
Students who were previously a part of the French Club were excited by the news that it would in fact be returning to the list of clubs, particularly, senior, Jenna Conty comments on Brown’s inclination to take over the French club.
“I’m excited that French Club is still around and that a student is willing to step up to the plate to continue the club,” Conty said.
So far, the club has participated in making Christmas Cards and had their annual Christmas Carols at the Harmon House. In the future, they intend to do Valentine’s Cards, after School French desserts, attend the French themed Gateway Clipper in May.
