Activities: NHS has had several activities this year. We hosted a community Red Cross Blood Drive in the fall and again in the spring. In December, we had a Secret Santa gift exchange and Christmas party with each student bringing a special treat for the party. Members worked the concession stand at a basketball game for their fund-raiser. Seniors who volunteer 8 hours at the blood drive and/or give blood will be eligible to wear the Red Cross cord at graduation ceremonies. Seniors may also apply for a Red Cross scholarship of $250 to be awarded to one senior in NHS.
