clubs(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS Girl Up is a female empowerment club that focuses on volunteering and spreading awareness for female causes.

Joining Girl up gives Mustang girls volunteering opportunities and the power to spread awareness for important causes.

The teacher who ran Girl Up last year moved out of state, so English teacher Kistin Wickstrom chose to take over the club.

Member of the leadership team Addison Shea, junior,  said she “likes being in Girl Up because it has a direct impact on the women in the community.”
