Knox Central High School students experienced first hand what RUSH week at colleges and universities consist of.

During the week of August 20, 2019, students visited exhibits and talked with sponsors about the many clubs and extracurricular activities available at Knox Central.  During the week students were able to sign up for one or more that they were interested in.

Much like college, Knox Central provides a wide variety of extracurricular activities.  For those who love to serve, the community service club may be an option.  For students enrolled in career pathways that would like to improve their skills, network with other students, and compete, there are career and technical student organizations.  From sports and sports fan clubs, to kindness and drug-free schools awareness, there were many topics both academic and student interest to choose from.

“Each morning before school began in the gymnasium lobby, students could check out the booths showcasing each club or organization and ask questions about the clubs,” explained Robin Wright, Promise Neighborhood site coordinator stated.

The opportunity to get involved doesn’t end with RUSH week.  Students are encouraged to talk to club sponsors or see a PartnerCorp member and share their interests so that they can be paired up with the club or organization that best fits them.
