"Jennifer is an exemplary young woman," said counselor Lynne McAbier. "She takes her school studies seriously, yet finds time to be involved in extracurricular activities and volunteer her time. Jennifer will be successful in her future endeavors. We are very proud of her."

School and Jehovah's Witnesses pp. 24-25 Extracurricular Activities ***
Clubs: Students with similar interests may want to share these interests as members of school clubs. Often, however, these clubs serve mainly for social activities. And it has been noted that sharing such activities with certain groups of students often leads to immoral conduct. In view of this possibility, we feel that careful consideration should be given before joining a school club.
Important questions that Witness youths and their parents would consider are these: Are the club?s activities limited to school hours? Do they come under close school supervision? Will belonging to the club require time after school that would be better spent in family or congregational activities? In the final analysis, it is the responsibility of Witness parents to decide what clubs or school organizations, if any, they will permit their children to join.
