Today I had the pleasure of accompanying three of our National Honor Society students and Grant, our NHS adviser, to the Red Cross in order to present a check for $101.01 to the Red Cross for disaster relief. NHS, led in this by Alexey Perkins, raised money to help victims of Hurricane Sandy this fall. The students ran a penny drive, and we are delighted with the results. The Red Cross was very grateful, and presented us with a certificate acknowledging our donation. We were treated to a tour of the facilities after the check was presented, and we hope to involve our NHS students in some volunteer opportunities at the Red Cross in the future. Thank you to Grant for helping the students put this together, and Brian for taking the photos. Meredith
