Hadley Hageman FCA club president said, “FCA, fellowship of Christian athletes, is a Christian group in the high school that has “huddles” every 1st and 3rd Wednesday during lunch where we do devotionals and other activities. It includes students from all walks of life (not just athletes), freshman to seniors and band students to sports stars. We also host events called 5th quarters where we meet somewhere (often New Hope) after a football or basketball game and hang out, eat food, listen to a speaker, and/or share our own testimonies with our peers. Last year we had speakers come before school and share their testimonies!
It’s a great club to join in high school because it allows you to independently grow as a Christian among other students, preparing you to be the “salt and light” as you enter college and life in general.”

“The goal is to expose students to other cultures and languages. We will have our first Dia de los Muertos mtg on Oct. 31 and will explore how the holiday is celebrated in Mexico. We will also have a Christmas potluck and hope to have a group of Azteca dancers come perform for the club.” said Mrs. Krug. Who also is the sponsor for international club.
“The Kansas Association for Youth (KAY) is a character-building, leadership-training, service program directed by the Kansas State High School Activities Association. This organization provides students opportunities to learn to assume their citizenship responsibilities and to enrich their personalities through well-organized programs, projects and parties. Programs educate, inspire and direct members into carefully planned service projects. These projects emphasize four areas of service – school, community, nation and world.” KAY was founded by Wanda May Vinson in 1945.
Since KAY is a KSHSAA sponsored activity, there are many KAY clubs throughout the state. KAY is open to any McPherson High School student grades 9-12. There are no prerequisites required to join this amazing organization, and we have approximately 90 students in our club. McPherson High School received the “gold” award in the fall of 2015 for its high level of service. The gold is the highest level a club can receive.
