Salsa the club
SALSA at LHS stands for Serve and Learn Student Association, an organization that sets up volunteering hours for students and keeps track of their hours throughout all of high-school. Volunteering not only helps LHS students get involved in the community and school but if you are wanting to go to college, volunteering looks great on an application.
The volunteering hours are done once a month either at LHS or somewhere else. A representative from HelpLine also comes into LHS to help students get involved with safe places that they can do community service for, even after graduation. Some of the many benefits of being in SALSA are helping the community obviously, and SALSA has a computer program that tracks all community service hours throughout high school. In volunteering, leadership comes hand-in-hand. Being a leader in the community shows future employers that they can delegate tasks to employees, are willing to work hard and passionately.
SALSA is a great way to give back to the community and help others in need. Volunteering one hour a month may not seem like much, but it could impact your future more than you know. On average there are 50 to 60 students who attend the monthly meetings at LHS. There are four main groups that participate in SALSA in Sioux Falls, and they are Roosevelt, Washington, Brandon and LHS; each one has a unique system set up for their school.
I personally think SALSA would be a great group to join, and have heard many people say how happy they are that they joined. Volunteering hours are very important to have on a college resume, and being the leader of a volunteering group is even better. Volunteering can help a student improve social skills such as meeting new people and can help people can lifelong connections through a great organization. I can say that I will for sure join SALSA, so I can better myself and others in the community
Salsa is not that great
Salsa is a staple of most parties and is often served alongside guacamole and chips.
There is an inferior in that duo, and it is not made out of the ever popular avocado. Unpopular opinion: Salsa is really just ok. If I had the choice between salsa and guac, you better believe the avocado would be my choice every time.
It is also really difficult to make salsa and make it right, sometimes it’s too spicy, sometimes it’s sour and sometimes people put strange ingredients in it.
Store bought salsa is hit or miss most of the time; there are so many different brands and types, and that means there are even more chances to get a bad one.
My solution to this problem is simple: Just don’t take the risk with salsa.
I have just been informed that I am supposed to be writing about the cons of SALSA, the student volunteer club. However, even after much consideration and research, I cannot really find any negatives to the program.
SALSA provides students with valuable experience with getting involved in their school’s and city’s community through logging volunteer hours. (Which is a lot better than a chip dip.)
Being involved in SALSA not only looks great on college applications, but the program makes participants better leaders in their community and in their school.
So if you are going to go with one type of salsa or the other, go with the club, not the chip dip.
