A second-year National Honor Society member, senior Gavin Hart raises money for the organization by selling flowers and candy grams, and running the candy guessing jar.

After COVID-19, the amount of student-led fundraisers and events had decreased. This school year marked the return of many student organization fundraisers, most of which had been run by the National Honor Society.

Many old and new fundraisers were introduced this year, including a technology drive, candy grams, flower sales, a candy guessing contest and the blood drive’s upcoming return. First-year National Honor Society member junior Clare Beutler is excited by these fundraising opportunities.

“I joined NHS to follow in my sister’s footsteps, but it has been so much more fun than I thought it would be,” Beutler said. “The fundraisers are fun to do, they help benefit the National Honor Society and we are raising money for charities with fundraisers like the technology drive.”

The flower sale fundraiser is not only benefiting the National Honor Society. Both NHS and the freshman class are running this fundraiser. Freshman class advisor Debby Baldwin had initially thought of the idea.

“As the advisor for the freshmen class, I wanted to come up with a new and different idea to fundraise,” Baldwin said. “I thought flowers would be good because I do it on the side so I can get the flowers at a discounted rate. I knew other organizations in the school do Valentine’s Day fundraisers so I reached out to the NHS, and now we are doing this as a collaboration to raise money for both organizations.”

These fundraisers have not only presented opportunities for those running it but also increased student engagement.

“I think having fun things like this makes everyone happier,” senior Stephanie Lozano said. “Being able to buy flowers or send candy to my friends makes me and everyone else happier to be at school.”
