In the past, freshman year has always comes with a series of hardships and unforeseen difficulties. But with the new year comes a new resource for incoming female students. Led by Seniors Corina and Keana Pigg, Morgan Wise, Bella Stephens, and Abby Zink the recent club they created drives home the central idea of family at Lakeridge High School. The student organized Sister Club pairs up a senior girl with a freshman girl to help make their first year a smoother experience.

Leading them to their classes, helping them open their lockers and showing them the true meaning of being a Pacer, the club allows freshman girls to make a connection with peers outside of their class. The participating seniors are very excited to reestablish the community atmosphere and encourage an easy transition from junior high to high school.

“I’m looking forward to helping my little sister have the best year possible,” said senior Ashtyn Fewel.

Fewel, along with all of the other seniors, feel prepared with the experience they have gained through their years in high school to assist their freshman sister with their day-to-day challenges. While enjoying high school alongside their senior sister, they have the option to attend a meeting held every month to check in with both girls.
Not only does this club provide guidance, support, and encouragement to participate, learn and enjoy their time at LHS but it also brings a sense of mutual friendship and family between all of the classes that has been missing for too long.

“I was nervous about going into high school, but now that I have a sister I can’t wait to experience the Pacer life,” said freshman Nicole Mccormack.
