On Thursday, Nov. 4, Korean Service for Foreigners (KSF) will be hosting a student-teacher football game after school. The club will be offering hot dogs, hot chocolate, drinks, and chips for the audience and the athletes. 

Amidst the pandemic, various volunteering clubs were not able to maintain their usual in-person volunteering activities. Hence, Erin Ryu (11), one of the executive members of KSF, sought to promote a collaborative fundraising event with other clubs by initiating the football game. Members of different clubs are responsible for serving and selling the various offered food. 

“The primary purpose of the student-teacher football game is not only to raise money for foreign students in the Immigrant Integration Center but also to promote camaraderie among students and teachers and open volunteering opportunities for other clubs,” Erin said. 

Teacher participants include Timothy Munro, physical education teacher, and James Tyvand, high school history teacher. Meanwhile, student participants include Woojune Kim (11), Samuel Hong (11), and Bryan Kim (11). The players will play four quarters, eight minutes each. 

“I am really looking forward to this event since it is my first time playing football, one of my favorite sports, with my teachers,” Samuel said. “I think it is a valuable experience for me to bond with my teachers outside of the classroom and from the academic environment.”
