Club Corner: California Scholarship Federation


Amelia Rivas, Staff Writer

Arroyo’s CSF Club (California Scholarship Federation Club) is about recognizing students of Arroyo who get good grades. It’s an “honors club to recognize scholars” said CSF Club advisor, Mrs. Melinda Laun-Flores. CSF does fundraisers, field trips to colleges, and participates in school wide charities.

CSF meets every other Tuesday during lunch, outside of room 26. It is one of the biggest clubs at Arroyo, with 187 members.

Here are the leaders of the club:

President- Connie Chan

Secretary- Alvin Ly

Vice President- Ethan Wong

Treasurer- Vivian Ha

Historian- Susan Duong

Adviser- Melinda Laun-Flores

In order to join, students must apply at the beginning of each semester. Students qualify within the first month of each semester, and they have to have 10 points to qualify. They can have Cs, but no Ds or Fs, or any 3s or 4s in citizenship.

If they’re in the club for 4 semesters, then graduates who have been in the club since the 2nd semester of their sophomore year until 2nd semester of their senior year graduate with honors. They get a gold card and tassel, a life member pin, and a gold seal on their diploma.  

If students get great grades and like to participate in school wide charities or go on field trips to colleges, then CSF Club is for them!
