Rho Kappa, the National Social Studies Honor Society, is having its first meeting on Friday Sept. 11 at 11 a.m. where they will hold officer elections for most positions. They plan on meeting on one Friday per month at 11 a.m.
The first major goal for the club will be its election project, where it will educate students on the importance of getting involved in politics and voting, “especially … in our local government,” said club president and senior Niamh Mulroy.
The club hopes it can make its message just as effective despite not being able to meet in person.
“Obviously in person interaction is always better. I would’ve liked to make some posters to go around the school about the importance of voting and posters detailing each candidate’s platforms. We can still educate people but not to the same level,” said Mulroy.
While the club will be focused on voting and elections for the first few meetings, they intend to broaden their scope and work on other things as the year goes on.
“In the short term, we want to educate people on the upcoming election. In the long term, we want to pass down the tradition of educating people on social studies,” said Mulroy.
To join the club you can get into contact with Mulroy at firstname.lastname@example.org or with the club advisor Michael Lichtenstein at email@example.com. To join Rho Kappa’s Remind, text @rkpbhs to 81010.
“If you’re someone who is a curious human and want to learn more about social studies, join,” said Mulroy.
