SAGA (Straight and Gay Alliance) is a club where students of any gender and sexual orientation can join together and participate in fun activities. This is the beginning of a new start for SAGA, after a year on hiatus as an active club. SAGA allows students from every grade to feel safe and get support from peers. English teacher Cynthia Auburn is sponsoring SAGA this year.

“Jayce Larson and Eris Grubb asked if I wanted to sponsor SAGA again and I said yes because I was saddened by the (club’s) demise. There has always been a need for it,” said Auburn. Larson and Grubb took the opportunity to work with Auburn to organize the first SAGA meeting.

At the meeting Tuesday, new members had the opportunity to meet other students that they did not know and introduce the new person to another individual. This is a smart and important icebreaking exercise because it takes away stress while mingling with people who have things in common with one another.

“People are shy getting to know each other, but over the course of time people will get closer and feel more open to share their stories,” said Auburn.

During the first meeting, club members discovered that there are a lot of artists and people who admire art in the group. Activities such as making posters and designing shirts will be a great way to use the shared trait of art among club members.

“We’ll have movie nights and design shirts and have parties. It’s still on the table to decide what we’re exactly going to do,” said Auburn.

Approximately 30 students attended the callout meeting.

“There are many more people involved (this time) and I think these people are gonna be more involved than the previous group,” said Auburn. “There’s more of a sense of urgency than before.”
