Sprinkling seeds of culture at South

SEEDS club, standing for “Students Empowering Education for a more Diverse Society”, has taken initiative this upcoming week to bring culture and diversity to Grosse Pointe South. With food trucks, posters and cultural activities, South SEEDS club is bringing awareness more than ever to all cultures. With many events going on this week, SEEDS members encourage everyone to stop by for food, mosaic making or any of their other events.

With activities everyday from April 15-19, any students are welcome and encouraged to participate in culture week. The SEEDS club Co-President Mia Fakih ’25 has been working nonstop with her club to make sure cultures are being shown and heard here at South. The students of SEEDS have worked hard to bring in food, dialogue and many other activities for students to participate in.

“SEEDS notices that our school has not been exposed to outside cultures, and as a club that values diversity we thought that needed to change,” Fakih said. “Culture week is an opportunity for students to themselves in other cultures they wouldn’t typically look at. We picked activities that are fun and easy to participate in to make it as accessible and possible to the students.”

With activities like an Arab food truck and Los Dos Amigos food truck, many students will experience the food from different cultures. Other activities include mosaic making at Cleminson Hall, where every student can make their own mosaic and learn the history of Latino. Many club go-ers like Duncan Richards ’25 are excited for this week at South.

“SEEDS club is important because it is promoting healthy discussion about different cultures,” Richards said. “We talk about diversity and other things going on in the world for anyone who wants to participate.”

While South is showcasing these amazing events, on Thursday there will be an option for students to take an in school field trip to watch delegates of The University of Michigan speak to students. The event is a good way for students to hear others talk about culture and diversity.

“SEEDS club is not a club strictly based on culture; it is a club based on creating a safe environment for dialogue,” Fakih said. “Though we do introduce and discuss many cultures, we are more focused on what is currently happening in the world.”

SEEDS encourages all students to stop by this week to see some new activities going on. The SEEDS club is an inclusive way to showcase diversity and all different cultures—that’s part of the reason why Co-President Katie Peck ’25 likes this club so much.

“SEEDS is a super easy and fun club to join at any time; it’s great because we are open to all options and ideas,” Peck said. “You also don’t have to be super experienced in topics we discuss. We also talk about current events in student-led dialogue.”

When he’s not finding the inspiration to write, Henry Doyle ’25 said enjoys whipping up snacks and other tasty treats in the kitchen, either at Cloverleaf Pizzeria or in his home kitchen. Doyle is also always on the go, playing many different sports like pickleball and swimming. He works as a lifeguard as well during the summer. The idea of working with friends is what attracted him to jobs at Cloverleaf and at Pier Park, but also drew him to The Tower.“It's not like other classes where you are doing individual work, you’re part of a team,” Doyle said. As a first year staffer, Doyle said he is eager to see what the Tower brings.“I think it is a fun idea to work for the newspaper,” Doyle said.
