Club of The Week!

Activism For Africa

According to Ruthie Presgrove, the president of Activisim for Africa, this club was created to discuss issues going on in Africa, such as
the AIDS crisis, Darfur, Congo rainforest deforestation, and many
more. It plans to have fund-raisers where the proceeds go to various
relief benefits, and direct volunteer sites. It also plans to send letters
and petitions to our state representatives to take more action, and
send letters to local newspapers, requesting that they focus on our
efforts to get other people interested. If you have any questions,
please email Presgrove at Thank you!

Activism for Africa meets Wednesday at 5pm in Rm. 134 at the mall site.

About Sarah Polan

Sarah Polan entered New River Community College in the summer of 2008 at age 16 after being homeschooled her entire life. She had already been a member of the Roanoke Times "Edge" staff for two years at that point. Sarah came to New River with the dream of rebuilding the long forgotten school newspaper and with the help and encouragement of Janet Hanks and the IT staff, the online Knight Rider was born. Sarah has served as editor and contributing writer for three semesters and continues to coordinate and produce the e-paper biweekly. She also edits an on-line national publication for the Boy Scouts of America Southern Region Venturing division and will be contributing an article to the nationally published Scouting magazine blog. She has also provided a student blog post to the student organization VA21. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys traveling in search of her dream college which she will transfer to next year.
