The Davis High chapter of the California Scholarship Federation has begun its new semester, welcoming both new and returning members to what is traditionally the largest club on campus.
Registration started today and will continue through Thursday, Sept. 25 during lunchtime in Room P-13. Registration will not be held on Friday, Sept. 26 because of homecoming.
CSF President Sydney Maguire has big plans for the community service organization. One of her goals as president is to enhance the efficiency of club meetings and registration. She also hopes to improve the flow of information because communication can be easily bogged down in an organization with hundreds of members.
“We often receive up to 30 emails daily, and sometimes our inbox becomes so flooded we aren’t able to get back to everyone with a well written response,” Maguire said. “This will not be the case in the upcoming semester: My goal is to have everyone know what is going on within the club.
Maguire believes that CSF helps give DHS a reputable name in the Davis community.
“CSF is an opportunity to work within the community and showcase all the hard work and dedication DHS has to offer,” Maguire said.
The main focus of the club is community service, and Maguire feels that the Short Term Emergency Aid Committee (STEAC) is one of the most impactful services CSF provides every year.
“The STEAC drive we do is one of the most humbling experiences CSF does,” Maguire said. “We as a club help make four families’ holiday seasons memorable, which we truly could not do without help and compassion of the 400 members we have.”
Those who wish to register for CSF must bring in a registration form, last semester’s grade report and $5. Returning members must also bring in last semester’s hours sheet.
