With Sept. being the most active month for hurricanes ever recorded, HHS’ National Honor Society (NHS) went from advisory to advisory on Oct. 23, raising money for victims of 

category five storm, Maria.

Led by Ms. Jennifer Heimlich, Social Studies and AVID, NHS is a nationwide organization which runs on the principles of scholarship, leadership, service, and character, consisting of students who excel academically.

Through their Miracle Minute fundraiser, NHS collected over $400 from students and staff. The areas most impacted by the natural disasters are currently in the midst of rebuilding and are in dire need of money and resources.

“All of the money we collect will be [given] directly to anyone in need,” said NHS president Claire Nash, senior.

According to Nash, the donations will be sent to Puerto Rico to help Hurricane Maria victims.

“We hand decorated cans for the event to show our support, and will be sending all of the money to help as much as we can from so far away,” Nash said.

NHS is also looking forward to upcoming fundraisers including a bingo event with prizes in November and a charity dance marathon in Jan.
