Windham school club fosters friendship, inclusion
That’s been the Windham High School club’s message since its inception four years ago, according to staff advisor Michael Welch.
“It’s an important mission because we all know high school isn’t an easy time for everyone,” Welch said. “Having regular club activities fosters friendships. It brings people together.”
Like many of the club members, Pierson, who will study human services at Assumption College this fall, said the softball game is one of her favorite events of the year.
That’s not to say there’s no sense of competition. Traditionally, staff members have beaten the student team on the softball field, but not for lack of trying on the students’ part.
Junior Aaron Hillyer said he’s proud to serve on the club’s board.
Welch started the JCA club shortly after his hire at Windham High School. For the first year the club had just under 30 members, but has continued to grow, doubling in size the following year.
“About once a month we take over an entire wing of the school,” Welch said. “We play games, we watch movies.”
“It’s just good fun for everyone,” he said.
