” I came to learn about AGS through Club Week and also through researching the PCC website to learn more about the scholastic opportunities PCC had to offer.”

2. What made you want to become a member of AGS?

What made me want to become a member of AGS is the fact that it was the perfect opportunity to become more involved with the school and to also give back to the community..”

3. What has been your most memorable experience of AGS thus far?

The most memorable experience of AGS thus far is being the Recruitment Manager for the AGS Blood Committee. Being in this committee helped me learn a lot about American Red Cross, the crucial need for blood, and it definitely grew my passion for helping others in need.”

4. In what ways has AGS benefited you?

AGS has benefited me in a sense that it has given me a realization on how important it is to give back to my community. When being involved in community service events, it’s a real eye-opener about the difficult and distinct situations people are in and it makes you feel good that you’re helping someone and actually making a difference in someone’s life.”

5. If you could change or improve one thing about AGS, what would it be and how would you change it?

If I could change or improve one thing about AGS, it would probably be to improve the community service events, such as having more community service events for children in need.  I would change it by getting in contact with more charities that support unfortunate children in different circumstances, and, having those connections, get the members more involved in the creation of those specific service events.”

6. Describe AGS in one word. Briefly explain.

“ I would describe AGS as Change because being in this honor society gives you the opportunity to change your views on unfortunate situations in people’s lives and makes you realize that the changes you’re making through community service really does make an impact in those lives.”
