Lily Osborne – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) club held its first meeting Aug. 19.
Social studies teacher and club adviser Ben Hall said the meeting had a great turn out, with a “large number” of new freshman and upperclassmen wanting to join.
The club has garnered a lot of love and support from all over the school. Hall says that they have received “nothing but open-armed support from administrators.”
Hall says that the club has many plans for the future. They are currently helping the LRHS Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) collect food and plan on helping other clubs with more fundraisers and donations later in the year.
Students that join GSA will have opportunities throughout the year to gain community service hours. The club holds meetings every Friday and students are free to join anytime.
