International Club at DHS


The DeWitt Creativity Group is excited to work with the Office of International Scholars and Students at Michigan State University to create the International Club at DeWitt High School. The main purpose of the International Club at DHS is to make immigrants and international guests in the Mid-Michigan area feel welcomed. Another significant goal of the International Club at DHS will be to educate students about foreign trade and globalization. The International Club at DHS is also interested in working with Welcoming America, an organization that works with communities to create a more open and welcoming environment for immigrants (www.welcomingamerica.org).
