Southern University Agricultural Center kicked off Club Recruitment Day Aug. 7 at St. Helena College and Career Academy in Greensburg.

At the event, Southern University Youth Development Agent Nicolette Gordon gave a short presentation and talked about the clubs his agency offers at the school.

“There are two awesome clubs that we have implemented at St. Helena College and Career Academy, and we can’t wait to get the third club underway,” said Gordon.

The three clubs are Interactive Leaders Engaging and Advancing Democracy, Outstanding Mature Girlz and Jag Leaders, who will also serve as Ambassadors for Healthy Living in the Greensburg community.

Students stopped by the SU Ag Center’s information table during their lunch shifts and registered. Gordon also said that she is working with School Board members and police jurors to get the Youth Educational Support after-school program underway. The YES program is scheduled to kick off in September at the Multi-Purpose Center in St. Helena’s 5th District.
