NHS (National Honor Society) is a nationwide organization for high school students. The purpose of NHS is “To create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools.” SVHS’s NHS members recently held a fundraiser for the people in Turkey and Syria affected by earthquakes. On a -6 degree day, NHS members took sponsored walks around the cross country skiing track at the golf course, eventually raising $2000.



Senior Ashlynn Erickson “It was a really fun experience. It was kind of cold but it got warmer throughout the day. There was hot chocolate and donuts to help keep people going throughout the laps.”





Senior Tygee Leavitt “Mr. Fullmer created a path, and we just walked on it and earned, like, $5 dollars or just walking on the track.”




Senior Abby Bagwell “It felt good to raise funds for people in Turkey and Syria that suffered from earthquakes.”
