Everyone is welcome to join our club and many find it a welcoming environment where you can meet new friends and ways to participate at Muscatine High School.

Students learn leadership skills by running meetings, planning projects and holding elected leadership positions. Last year, our club completed over 700 hours of community service and won an achievement award from our District!
