Saesha Rajput & Venkat Vellanki

Asian club is a multicultural club that consists of enlightenment about the vibrant community of Asian Americans and their cultural backgrounds. The main purpose is to enrich the awareness and appreciation of AsianAmerican/Pacific Islander Culture. There are numerous activities that are associated through essential initiatives for this club. Some key examples include planning and hosting fundraisers events to support Asian owned small businesses and public health. To enhance the voter mobilization for a drastic voter turnout of minority groups. 

Currently, there is a major upcoming fundraising event which is the MOVIE NIGHT, it is a SERVICE HOUR OPPORTUNITY open to all CNHS students. There are four 45 minute sessions that are available for signing up. During that time, students watch TV of Asian content that features The Office and Master of None episodes. It is held over a period of two days, starting on December 18th and ending on December 19th. There are two different sessions of 45 minutes offered on both the days. The 3PM Time Session includes short videos and reflection. The 8PM Time Session includes a TV Show and reflection. If all the sessions are attended, the student can earn up to 3 HOURS!
