The jewel of the 2016 annual club fair, the Columbus Aviation Club, made its debut.To many’s surprise the club had a membership subscription of over 30 people in the first day it was opened to columbus students. The school offers many other clubs such as Key Club, Pre Med, and Anglers Club yet the Aviation Club truly stood out of the crowd in this years fair.
The aviation club is one of the many clubs Columbus has to offer, but it was truly a standout during the club fair. The club was like bait thrown into water ripe with fish, it reeled in student after student and caught the eye of faculty members who took part at the club fair. If there was anything more eye-catching than the club itself it was the club leader. Ryan Vidal wore a full pilot’s uniform to the club fair, a serious conversation starter that no doubt caught the eye of the crowd. Whether it’s Ryan’s outfit or the club’s activities that grab people’s attention, the new Aviation club is sure to leave people with their eyes in the sky. Theres more to the club fair than just joining clubs or adding another name to a roster, its about allowing students to show who they truly and who they’d like to become. Its about making new friends meeting new people and forming relationships with people that will last a lifetime. “By getting involved in clubs and activities, students will make new friends some that will even last a lifetime.” said President of Columbus High School, Brother Kevin Handibode. Therefore the club fair did offer a battalion of new clubs, it offered many learning opportunities and the chance to meet new people.
