Cherokee has had an LGBTQ+ centered club for many years called the CHS Pride Alliance. The club ended a few years back due to scheduling conflicts only to be revived this school year by a couple CHS students in October. Today, approximately a dozen students are now members, and they continue to encourage participants.
The club promotes activities that foster a sense of belonging and provide students a safe space to meet and collaborate with whom they can relate.
This year, during club meetings students have participated in bonding activities such as poster making, playing games, making a Christmas tree for the CHS festival of trees, and more.
The club typically meets the first Monday of every month for anyone interested.
Here’s what some of the members had to say about the club:
“I like being able to hang out with people like me and do fun stuff,” said sophomore, Katy Williams.
“There is honestly too many interesting people there and you never know what to expect,” said freshman, Sebastian Hines
“It’s a great atmosphere and group of people to be around,” said senior, Alex Bennett
“I like being able to address lgbt issues and educating others,” said freshman, Frog Vassy.
For everyone interested in joining the club, we would love to have you. Contact MS. Jansen in room 607 main for more information.
