Zonta hosts Z Club facility

Press release

In celebration of International Education Day, the Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley hosted the installation of its brand new Z Club for Canyon High School on January 24, International Education Day, which is celebrating its fourth year.

“Changing course, transforming education” is this year’s theme, indicated by Unesco. The purpose of this theme is to strengthen and welcome the revival of education. COVID-19 has now created a generation that has suffered in the way it learns. Educational institutions had to evolve the way students could learn, including activities and clubs.

Club president Nicole Miller demonstrated the installation on Zoom and was live on Facebook. Many Zonta notables attended, including former International President Dianne Curtis, District 9 Lt. Governor Debbie Angwood and Zone 3 Director Gloria Salas.

Zonta International President Sharon Langenbeck congratulated the new Z Club.

Also in attendance were Councilor Marsha McLean, a Zontian; Linda Storli, member of the William S. Hart Union High School School District Board of Trustees; Canyon Manager Shellie Holcombe; Timothy Hopper, Ilona Anderson, Jaime Foderaro and Wendy Aird, vice principals at Canyon High School.

Hart District Board Member Cherise Moore also shared a few words to welcome Canyon High School students to the Z Club program.

Canyon High School Z Club counselors Maria Cooper and Ryanne Meschkat introduced the Z Club Board of Directors and installed Z Club leaders and members. Each student received a yellow rose and other items.

The Zonta Club of the Santa Clarita Valley sponsors the Canyon High School Z Club and will provide these students with guidance and mentorship to provide opportunities to better the lives of women and girls here locally and internationally.

At the end of the presentation, Gloria Salas, on behalf of District 9, welcomed the Z Club students from Canyon High School to Zonta.
