MHS Hosts Activities Fair

Students interact with teachers and students at the Marquette Talent Show table.

Clubs, student organizations and sports teams set up tables during Mod 2 of Ac Lab on Wednesday for students to explore and ask questions about their activity.

As a school with more than 90 organizations, the Activities Fair benefited students who look to get more involved in their school, Sophomore Principal Kyle Devine said.

Devine said joining clubs not only promotes student involvement but also helps students perform better academically.

We have 2,200 kids and a variety of interests. We don’t want anybody to feel like Marquette isn’t their place.

— Kyle Devine

“We have 2,200 kids and a variety of interests,” Devine said. “We don’t want anybody to feel like Marquette isn’t their place.”  

Isabela Tyulyayev, junior, agrees that the Activities Fair is beneficial for students. 

“[Activities] can give you a lot of new opportunities for college and other such things, since it looks pretty good on transcripts,” Tyulyayev said.

One of the clubs represented at the Activites Fair was the Rocketry Club, sponsored by Kevin Sharitz. 

The Rocketry Club allows students to learn about aerospace engineering and to design actual rockets, which is something they would not be able to learn in a normal school day, Andrew Cook, junior and co-captain of the club said.

Cook said that being a member of a club allows students to form connections with other students and staff around the school that share their interests.

“We have some people in the club who’ve never had Mr. Sharitz, but they’re going to be able to meet him because they’re in the club,” Cook said.

Devine said it’s important for students to know that, no matter their interests, there is always an organization at MHS for them. 

“Everybody can be a part of Marquette in some way.” Devine said.
