In a school of over 2,000 students, nine Diversity club members attended a Diversity Summit at the Macomb Intermediate School District (MISD) to help the school community set aside differences and unite.

“Diversity club, to me, is everyone being welcomed and not judged for who they are, regardless of their color, sexual orientation and more; which I think is a really great thing,” sophomore club member Kylee Zook said.

Created this school year, Diversity club welcomes students of all races, ethnicities and religions to embrace their differences and come together. The club holds bimonthly meetings, which are led by senior club president Ayona Hudson. On Tuesday, Nov. 28, the club members took a trip to MISD to learn more about diversity.

“There were breakout sessions that were really informative about understanding biases and being aware that we all have them,” club sponsor and assistant principal Kimberly Hodsdon said.

Speakers talked about how to reduce prejudices in everyday life. The club plans to reiterate these beliefs throughout the school; actions include a multicultural bake sale and posters to wish those of different religions a happy holiday.

“Through this club,” Hodsdon said, “we want to bring more cultural sensitivity and awareness to the Eisenhower community.”
