Asian Club is an organization at Lake Howell that aims to educate the student body about Asian culture and society. As Asian culture is mostly overlooked in pop-culture and western society, this club attempts to showcase Asian countries and their culture. The current president is Hannah Tran, a senior at Lake Howell, and the sponsor is Mr. Agagnina. Meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month, in room 1-232, with rare exceptions.
Each month will represent a different country; for example, October was Thailand and November was the Philippines. We will enjoy cuisine from that month’s selected country as we discuss their history and the current events of the country. Our goal is to shine a light on Asian culture in a way where high school students will be able to enjoy it and interact with the culture. Asian club tries to immerse students into Asian society through discussions and cuisine; as most members consider themselves as Asian-Americans, this club acts as a safe space to discuss current events and politics with one another. It serves as a great way to learn more about Asia than you would in a normal class setting.
If you want to get more information, you can join the remind for Asian Club by texting “@lhhsac” to 81010 to stay updated on upcoming meetings and events for Asian Club.

Seniors must have paid dues and the requirement for meetings is at least one meeting attended in every quarter in order to receive a cord. New members are welcome at any time; Asian Club is open to every student at Lake Howell regardless of race. Asian Club is truly a rewarding experience and it is highly recommended that you join! Hope to see everyone at the next meeting!
