In addition to all the old clubs Academy is continuing this year, Academy has also introduced three new clubs.

This year, for the 2017-2018 school year, Academy has decided to launch three new clubs: Gardening Club, Digital Media Club, and Archives Club.

The purpose of the Gardening Club is to work on the AHN on-campus garden to increase the its yield to feed the hungry in Tampa and restore the garden at Mary Help of Christians. The moderator of Gardening Club is Erin Lee, a middle school teacher at the Academy. The club was founded by Julia Lee (‘18) and Neha Simon (‘18).

“I joined because I’ve always been interested in alternative agricultural methods that are more sustainable and this club explores implementing hydroponics at our school.” says Morgan Salzsieder (‘18).

“Neha and I started the club because we knew the elementary school had spent a lot of money and time building the garden and felt like it didn’t have the help necessary to do what it was intended to do, to send produce to nearby homeless shelters.” says co-founder, Julia Lee (’18).

The Digital Media Club serves to provide students with different opportunities to work together on projects and learn new forms of digital media which includes: photography, videography, and graphic design. The club will also serve to help with Achona Online and Echoes, the school yearbook. The moderator for Digital Media Club is Kat Kelly, a Communications Associate at AHN.

Jules LaVoy (‘18) says, “I really like the idea of getting to learn more about digital ways of making art, like through adobe software.”

“I talked to Mrs. Krukar about wanting to start the club because I knew the morning show was not going to be made anymore and I knew we wouldn’t have a platform for students who enjoy digital art anymore,” says Kat Kelly.

The Archives Club was created in order to share the messages of the Sisters of the Holy Names through helping to continue the preservation of artifacts. The moderator of Archives Club is Sister Mariellen Blaser.

“I thought Archives Club sounded like a lot of fun and the moderator seemed really sweet, so I decided to join.” says Hailey Eckermann (‘18).
