“At the beginning of the year, me and a couple of people were joking around, saying we should have an ‘all black club’ and what not, and we were just joking. Then one day a girl named Kameron Hamilton told me that she wanted to start a club and asked me if I wanted to be president. And I asked her ‘What’s the club’s name?’ and she said ‘Black Student Union’ and I was like oh sure! Cause we had been joking around about it, so that’s how it started.” Said Tashi Hyppolite, president of BSU, when asked how the club came to be.
Even though the idea of BSU was thrown around, in all seriousness, they have important plans coming up.
“In February we’re planning this event, because it’s Black History Month. So we’re planning on doing a lot of stuff for that month. Something that shows the history of African Americans.”
The first meeting, as of now, has still not yet been set up, but they will meet every Wednesday. They’re supervisor is Mr. Lindfors, but they usually meet up in Mrs. Lindfors’ room. Everyone is welcome, especially since Tashi is still looking for a Treasurer and a Secretary for the club. If you have any questions about the club, you can always ask Tashi.
On any last words about the club, she said, “It’s gonna be really fun. Full of laughter, a lot of people should join ‘cause it’s going to be really fun. It’s bomb.com!”
