Southwestern Chess Club

Southwestern Chess Club

Emma Schneider

Chess Club is a club new to Southwestern and it’s sponsored by the high school gym teacher, Mrs. Cloyd. The club has only been meeting for a month now on Tuesdays and Thursdays virtually for two hours after school in order to see how large the student interest is. Mrs. Cloyd feels comfortable buying chess boards for the 15 current members. Once the club returns to in-person they will be meeting in the library. As of now, chess is the only game they play during the club meetings, but possibly with more members, they will expand their game circle. All grades are welcome to join after spring break, which is when meetings will start up again.
