GJHS hosts first club fair to help bring school together

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Grand Junction High School hosted its first club fair Thursday.

Students in the Business Leadership Class organized the event to bring everyone closer together.

Students could choose from more than 50 clubs including snowboard, chess, anime, and recycling societies.

It was mandatory for freshman but more than two-thirds of the entire school attended.

"We wanted an opportunity to put all of the clubs in one place, kind of like a job fair but a club fair,” said business teacher at GJHS, Cindy Ficklin-Sharp Ed.S.

"There’s so many to choose from and I think it will definitely help late in life,” said 9th grader at GJHS, Athen Thornal.

"We have several people signed up,” said Granola Club member and student at GJHS, Kyra TerLouw.

"They make good friends and they are all involved in something that matters to them,” said Co-President of the EDUKT club, Alejandra Valdez.

Students who signed up for societies will be notified by club leaders about when meetings and events will be held next.

Students say they hope this will become an annual affair.
