“Students In Action” is a new student group to Mauldin High. Its motto is “Multiplying Good” and its pillars are to promote leadership, engagement, and impact. These values are established in the following ways:

  • Leadership–Develop current and future leadership potential within students.
  • Engagement–Promote the value of service and grow volunteerism within the school community.
  • Impact– Measure the impact of volunteerism and reward efforts to develop measurement systems.

Students In Action” has developed two primary community service initiatives. They include:

  1. Clothing Closet: Clothes (new or very gently used) have been donated from clothing stores and various other sources. Students are able to see a guidance counselor or teacher based on individual needs or a need beyond Mauldin High that will still serve the Mauldin community.
  1. Serenity Place: Items will be donated to Serenity Place based on their following wish list:
  • New Women’s Undergarments
  • Maternity Clothing/Pants
  • Baby Towels/Receiving Blankets
  • Baby Wash, Lotion, Powder, Diaper Crème
  • Baby Bottles
  • Baby Bathtubs
  • New Socks (all sizes)
  • Women’s Care Products (shampoo/conditioner, soap/body wash, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, floss, lotion)
  • Laundry Baskets

Students and community members are encouraged to make a donation of their choice. Donations can be made to the front office. Various MHS student clubs will be granted community service hours for their donation(s).
