Tecumseh Students Give Back in New Student Club
    Students at Tecumseh High School now have an additional extracurricular option designed to provide students with an opportunity to serve others in their community. 
    A Junior Optimist (JO) Club started this year at THS with the mission of “making the school and community a better place one service project at a time.”  JO meetings take place the second and fourth Monday of the month after school.  Students explore potential service projects that will benefit those around them.  It’s a unique opportunity to develop a heart for service and the mentality to “pay it forward” for others in need.  
    Some service projects that club members have completed so far include making blankets for the residents of Vancrest Nursing Home in New Carlisle, collecting plastic grocery bags which are then used to make mats for the homeless, filling shoe boxes with small items and delivering to homeless shelters for use by homeless teenagers, and sponsoring a water bottle drive to help with the relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Texas earlier this year.  
     Students interested in this opportunity should contact Assistant Superintendent Paula Crew or High School Guidance Counselor Kristie Talley for additional information.  New members are always welcome.
