Giana Webster lives her life hoping never to judge anyone for their differences. This is a big reason for her joining Diversity Club, a place where being unique is praised.

Diversity at a high school is a standard expectation, but is not necessarily always prevalent. Diversity Club is a part of Antioch Community High School that raises the standard of being diverse. 

This club had Carolyn Grieco as their sponsor last year, but no longer due to personal reasons. Students join the club to plan diversity week and to create projects that will inspire students to be themselves.

“I’ve always been interested in trying to keep things equal and fair among race, sex [and] everything,” Diversity Club member Gina Webster said. 

They have a number of members who try their best to make their big ideas come to life. Webster believes that teenagers are in a stage of life that prevents them from having the desire to create change. Diversity Club combats that idea completely.

“People don’t want to try and they feel like we’re very active, and we are,” Webster said. “In certain ways, [students are scared of being diverse, but we] just try to be nice to everybody.”

Diversity Club is constantly trying to help kids be more diverse.
