Taking Charge: CHS Peer Helpers
The returning club, peer helpers, has started back up with a plan to supply support to the surrounding student body. With help from guidance counseling, peer helpers establish a support system fully run by the students for students.
The club consists of students from every grade level run by President Abby Gwan-Nulla, Vice President Addison White, Secretary Enayah Mussa, and Historian Rya Bell, alongside with a diverse group of the student body.
The group plans to create a safe space for students which includes supportive events and actions. Earlier in the year, the group planted drug free pledges in support for red ribbon week and plan to do more for CHS students.
“I plan on creating fun events so people can socialize so Columbus High School can be a community where everyone can be friends and interact with one another,” says Oriana Nixon.
The organization aims to provide help and guide students in the right direction, students can seek support from peers their own age. When asked about where the club is headed and why she decided to join peer helpers Oriana Nixon also states “I joined peer helpers because I honestly just love helping others”.
The group aims to help create CHS to become an overall better place for students and the community
