Deerfield, Pay Attention!

1 thought on “Deerfield, Pay Attention!”

  1. As a former head of the Young Democrats and member of the Current Events club, I dedicated most of my extracurricular time at DA to this kind of activity. From my experience, it’s hard to get students interested in things that don’t affect them immediately.
    I felt like there used to be a minority of interested students that gathered and discussed issues my sophomore and junior years. But after the election of Barack Obama, members of my club slowly stopped showing up to meetings.
    I really hope that current students take initiative and join the Young Democrats/Republicans and attend meetings. The Current Events club was also a great place to discuss news and opinions. I think the Scroll should also have a political column like it did when I wrote.
