Student Organizations


A.C. S.P.E.A.K.S.

A.C. S.P.E.A.K.S. stands for Students Preparing and Executing Acts of Kindness and Service. Our goal is to promote service to those in need and to bring awareness to our students of the various non-profit organizations in our community, the needs these organizations help to meet, and how one can get involved. Projects are selected each semester that focus on helping a non-profit organization or an individual or a family in need. Membership is open to any student who is interested in serving others, but is automatic if you are a member of an Interpersonal Communication class that conducts service projects as part of this organization.
