Cultural Diversity Alliance Club

Cultural+Diversity+Alliance+Club

At Waterford High School, diversity is very limited. Early this year, the Cultural Diversity Alliance Club was created by seniors Saeeda Samed, Kecelia Hill, and alumni Alexah Napoles, with the help of Mrs. Baumgartner as the club advisor. The club’s focus is to celebrate and recognize different races and cultures in the Waterford Community. The club prides itself on being a safe space for inclusivity and diversity at Waterford High School. Initially, the club was met with hesitation because of the uncertainty of the purpose of the club. During the 2022-2023 school year, one of the few projects put together was a flag display for Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. As time went on, the club gained more positive reception from the student body at Waterford High School. Especially after the success of the Lancer Activity Fair, the Cultural Diversity Alliance grew in numbers with a variety of underclassmen and upperclassmen joining the club. The club does an array of activities that vary from discussions, projects, volunteering opportunities, and displays. For the 2023-2024 school year, the CDA club is planning a Culture Day open to the Waterford community late March and will be held at Waterford High School. The point of the event is to celebrate the different cultures that reside in the Waterford community. The event will have entertainment, food, and presentations all spotlighting a variety of cultures.
