CURRENT EVENTS: Students may be participating in the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago’s Fed Challenge on March 31 and April 24, in which a group organizes a 15-minute presentation on the state of the economy and recommends policies. Carmel may not participate this year due to the time constraints of members.

THOUGHTS: “I think we have some really strong students. If they have adequate time to prepare for it, they can be successful,” Clayton said.

Carmel will send multiple teams, each consisting of four people in which the best player competes against the best player on another team, the second best against second best, and so forth. Chess Club has placed first in the competition for the last three years.:

THOUGHTS: “We’re pretty inexperienced. But that’s good because a lot of people, they play a lot more by the rules, and I think we’re more creative with our styles. We have unorthodox ideas because we don’t usually follow the status quo,” Philleo said.


PRESIDENT: Sophomore Muskaan Ramchandani

WHAT IT IS: A newly founded club, Good Samaritan Club’s goal is to raise money and awareness for an non-governmental organization called Open Door Foundation that helps orphanages in Bangalore, India receive education and other necessities. They are currently planning a bake sale for fundraising.

THOUGHTS: I realized there are a lot of clubs that involve giving and service to people within our community and beyond, but I feel like this is a unique cause.” Ramchandani said.
