ANCHOR CLUB OF NORTH SHORE WINS TOP AWARDS AT STATE CONVENTION



           

            The Anchor Club of North Shore captured five top awards, including three first place awards, at the state convention held in late February in Beaumont.
            The Anchor Club, a service club for students in grades 9-12, was created in 1952 by Pilot International as a way to get young people involved in volunteer activities within the school and local community. North Shore’s Anchor Club was established in 2004 and club members have been active in service projects since its inception. There are currently 140 members in the Anchor Club of North Shore, making the group the largest in the state.
            At the state convention the Anchor Club of North Shore captured first place in yearbook for the second consecutive year; first place in Website and was named the Outstanding Club of the Year meaning these students advance to the International Competition held in Norfolk, Virginia this July.
            In addition to the first-place awards, team members won second place in scrapbook and third place for the Brain Related Disorder Focus Service project, which is this year’s focus. The Anchor Club of North Shore shared that focus with the sponsoring club - the San Jacinto Pilot Club and Pilot International.
