HHS Students Organize Toy Drive for Niswonger Children's Hospital

In recent weeks, members of the National Honor Society at Holston High School have been hard at work collecting items for a toy drive for the patients at Niswonger Children's Hospital in Johnson City, TN.  Community service projects are an integral part of the club experience at Holston High School and NHS president Maddie R. took this opportunity to challege fellow NHS members to think beyond the Damascus community and develop a broad impact plan.  Faculty advisor, Julie Matlock, encourages her students to participate in community service projects to "help develop skills and make contacts while allowing them to improve the quality of life for other people." 

Donated items were delivered to Niswonger on Wednesday, February 20th.  NHS member Claudia F. stated that "the donations were very welcomed by the staff.  They get most of their donations around Christmas so they appreciated another large donation at this time of the year."
