The Fairfield High School chapter of the National Honor Society has had a very successful school year. The student organization has successfully directed several school activities including two charitable projects and has volunteered at numerous events for various agencies throughout the county and beyond.
In October, the NHS group aided The Fairfield FFA Chapter by participating in the annual Safe Halloween event. The event was held in the Fairfield Local School Auditeria and allowed children to trick or treat safely while school groups and area businesses handed out candy. Participation in this activity allowed NHS members to provide service to the community while fostering a safe environment for everyone to enjoy.
In November and December, the group directed its sixth annual Winter Wear Drive. As a result, numerous pairs of gloves, scarves, winter hats and coats were collected to benefit the students at Fairfield Local Schools. Furthermore, in March, Fairfield’s National Honor Society launched the Pennies for Patients campaign to assist the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to actively fund local blood cancer research for pediatrics and adults. In addition to the events listed above, a host of other community service events were supported by NHS members throughout the year.
The goal of the National Honor Society is to give back to the school and community by maintaining high standards of character and scholarship as well as proving leadership and service to others. The NHS, in part, fulfills this goal by conducting charitable projects. If you or your business have service projects that require assistance, have questions regarding the NHS mission or would like to help the organization in any way, contact NHS advisor Kristi Condo at 937-780-2966 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
