Clubs and Organizations
The Andy Hansana Civic Club
Susan Jackson, Advisor
The Andy Hansana Civic Club was founded to honor Andy Hansana, a kindergarten student who died of terminal brain cancer. Throughout his short lifetime, Andy showed great optimism, a friendly smile and always a kind word. During the year, we visit cancer patients and develop fund raisers for many charities.

Battle of the Brains
Lisa Rode, Advisor
Battle of the Brains, a question-and-answer competition, requires middle schools in the Upstate to put on their thinking caps. Bill Drake, local radio host of Awake with Drake, is the founder and brains behind this quiz bowl tradition, involving 36 schools from four counties of South Carolina. Each week, the students are on the stage of David W. Reid Theatre at Chapman Cultural Center answering random questions hoping to bring home prize money to their schools. Winners are determined through a bracket system, and with cash prizes reaching $1,000, motivation to win is high. The top eight schools, better known as the Elite Eight, are then invited back at the end of the competition to a reception complete with a mock game, dinner, and cash prize awards.
