Students in Action (SIA), a student-run, service based club, held their first meeting today in the Center at lunch.

“I felt that the first meeting was really interesting because I didn’t really know much about the club,” sophomore Sinead McKeon said. “Now I’m really excited to help.”

The goal of the first meeting was to welcome new members and announce the plan and goals for the year, according to co-club head Isabelle Armstrong.

“The first meeting was good. I feel like it’s going to be a great year,” freshman Molly Brown said. “We figured out what we’re going to do and how we’re going to do it.”

The members are planning to volunteer at La Casas de las Madres, a non-profit organization whose goal is to support women and adolescent girls affected by domestic violence.

SIA formed last year after Stuart Hall High School’s members reached out to students to begin a club on the girls’ campus. After a slow start, the club has organized and mapped out their plan for the year.

“Last year wasn’t as proactive, but now we’re really getting off to a good start,” Armstrong said. “We have service days planned so we’re on top of it.”
