The Edwardsville Peer Influence Club (EPIC) group is one of the largest extracurricular clubs at Edwardsville High School. EPIC members are comprised of students from all grade levels and are accepted to the club after successfully completing an application and interview process. EPIC members are leaders, helpers, educators, and role models. Their primary mission is to encourage their peers to avoid alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs and to engage in safe and healthy behaviors. They do this by sharing educational information and media campaigns and by planning fun activities for all EHS students. Some of the events they have sponsored in the past include: Tailgate party before a home football game, Red Ribbon 5K race, Teen-only Trivia nights, lunchtime giveaways and activities, Halloween costume contests…and many more. EPIC members also do a great deal of volunteer work at other District 7 schools and the community.
“EPIC is an awesome group! I LOVE being a part of it and feel like I am doing something really good for my school.” …current EPIC member
