As a ninth grader, current senior Jordan Nichols didn't realize the impact older students would have on her. Now, four years later, she is trying to be the same influence for new high schoolers. Ever since her freshman year, Nichols has been participating in school clubs. She started off with Student Council and Key Club. 

Nichols started off as just a member of these clubs, but now she has a bigger role as the co-president of Student Council and the Secretary of Girl-up (which is a new club initiated by MHS senior Juli Hanson). Since Nichols started participating in clubs so early, she witnessed older students who were passionate about the goal of each club. 

“These people have inspired me to be involved in and support the well-being of the school,” said Nichols. Throughout her years at MHS, she shared that she has seen and experienced both things that she had enjoyed and didn’t enjoy. 

Something Nichols does enjoy is planning school events. “It’s a fun and great way for me to help improve our school,” said Nichols. She likes to be enthusiastic about school events because she wants to make the most of her time being a high schooler. Nichols enjoys being in all these clubs because they are a great way to get involved in your school, community, and it’s a good way to meet new people which she takes delight in. 

Nichols’ only goal that she hopes to achieve from being in multiple clubs is to make a positive impact on the school atmosphere. She wants to help students who attend Moorhead High now, and also set up a future for them so they have a good high school experience.  Her opinions and others’ opinions have inspired her to be able to serve and improve the functions, events, and atmosphere of Moorhead High School.
