Club Description: A full contact study in the art of medieval style combat. Malark started Gladiators as a senior project in 2006 and it's still going strong today.
Number of years volunteering: A decade!
Favorite Memory: During year one, for the senior project, we set up the gym coliseum style, based on the show Gladiators. We staged a bunch of fights - people got really into it and the cheering was amazing. From then on I watched students who weren't involved in other activities get involved with Gladiators.
What do you enjoy the most? Witnessing the personal growth every single year. Watching people find themselves. Watching people who don't fit in find a place where they can be involved and make friends.
What would people be most surprised to learn about you?
I'm a metal singer.
Anything else to add? In the 2nd year of Gladiators, Senator Jon Tester visited Flagship. He visited Gladiators and enjoyed fighting with the Gladiators so much that he stayed the whole time even though he had other clubs to visit.
Volunteer with us!
"The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention."
With over 2,000 Missoula youth participating in Flagship every year the gift of time given by volunteers in our community is what keeps Flagship afloat!
The Flagship Program recruits volunteers to lead or assist in after school and summer activities. To be a volunteer with Flagship means to commit to spending one day a week, more if you are able, after school from 3-5:30 pm working with students in a school setting. Volunteering with Flagship is a wonderful opportunity to be a positive adult mentor to youth in our community.
