Star Academy is proud to sponsor two clubs, My Brother’s Keeper for the gentlemen that attend our school and The Jewels of Star for the ladies.
These clubs are open to anyone who shows interest and applies. There is an interview process to confirm interest and talk about goals.
The clubs meet once a week during school time to address various topics. The meeting topics can range from ‘how to’ sessions to guest speakers to different events and sometimes field trips.
In the past the clubs have helped out at the community in a variety of ways including volunteering at the Harnett County Special Olympics and partnering with a local church and providing toys, class supplies, and hygiene products for Operation Christmas Child. The students packed the boxes for the children during a club meeting.
Star Academy has adopted Lillington/Shawtown Elementary School for the 2019-2020 school year and plans on helping the students there however they are able to. We have already had one donation event this school year where multiple community organizations donated a variety of school supplies and came to talk about how they can help. It is great to see how much the community cares and encourages our students to give back.
