For those who unaware the National Honor Society, also known as NHS is a group of juniors and seniors around the community who maintain at least 3.5 GPA, and want to do beneficial things to help the community. NHS is a club that students can participate in at Gull Lake, among other places.
Right now, the NHS is organizing a food drive here in Richland. The food drives main goal is to give food out to disadvantaged families. The NHS gets a list of families and gives them and other useful things based of what they need.
Besides National Honor students, the Volunteens and Church groups help at the drive. The drive is very beneficial and helpful to the community, and helps disadvantaged families in the area. National Honor Society adviser, Pat Pearson believes that participating in this fundraiser is an easy and positive way to contribute to the Richland community.
“Well I think it’s a community service and what we ask for in National Honor’s Society is that members do community service, things that are helpful to the community,” Pearson said. “That could be any number of things but I think that this is certainly something worth while to try and help people right here in our neighborhood.“
National Honor Society also plans the Red Out, which helps pass around the awareness of heart disease, along with bright nights, which is also involved with the food drive.
