In a society in which underage drinking and drug abuse is so prevalent, the LEAP club is driven more than ever to provide positive outlets for high school students to stay sober while having a good time.

“LEAP stands for Leadership, Encouragement, Alternatives and Positivity,” said junior club member Madison Jones. “We are basically just an open place where students can feel accepted, and our events are alternatives to using alcohol and other drugs.”

Club meetings are held on every day one and are open to all students. During a meeting intended to plan out the month of April, members brainstormed the idea of having a Karaoke Night hosted at Glen Rock High School.

On April 5, the LEAP club saw their idea come to life, after a week of promoting the event with invites, flyers and posters.

The event was called “Karaoke and Lip Sync Night,” and students interested in participating as a judge or a contestant were encouraged to attend.

“Our expectations for the night were surpassed, actually. The turnout was better than we had expected, which was really great,” said Luke Blomstrom, junior club member.

All the participants were really energetic and involved at the event. Most of them actually sang and didn’t lip sync. The attendees cheered each other on and made sure to bring positive vibes.

“I’d definitely consider the night a success. It was a really fun time, and everyone was enjoying themselves,” said Blomstrom, “and plenty of people came to the event.”

The LEAP club is always looking for new members and are open to new activities. Their next event will be “PARCCs and Rec,” a stress reliever for PARCC test takers.

After the success of the first ever LEAP Karaoke and Lip Sync night, the club has a positive outlook on the events for the rest of the year.

“It was super great to see new and old faces of LEAP and get to jam with them all,” said Jones.
