Members of the Centennial High School Horizon Club never run out of ideas when it comes to benefitting The Arc. Originally a spin-off of the Ellicott City Horizon Council, the group is now Centennial’s largest club, with more than 100 members.
Since the club began a formal partnership with The Arc, members have hosted a dance, raised money, served as lane ambassadors at Bowling for a Change events and helped staff the water station at the Columbia Triathlon. Members have also worked closely with People Power, a self-advocacy group of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, to plan a day of service together.
“The Centennial High School Horizon Club members bring imagination, enthusiasm and energy to The Arc’s activities in which they participate,” says Volunteer Coordinator Lisa Kawata. “We know we can count on them to provide volunteers to help with our community events such as the Columbia Triathlon and Bowling for a Change.”
In recognition of its many contributions, the club won The Arc of Maryland’s “Light the Fire” Meritorious Service Award and has been named The Arc of Howard County’s Outstanding Volunteer Outreach Organization.
