NHS Walks For Lauderdale Lakes Alzheimer’s Care Center

IMG_0502The National Honor Society has a special relationship with the Lauderdale Lakes Alzheimer’s Care Center. Throughout the year NHS visits the center with around 20 students to spend time with the seniors. NHS members, led by chairman Megan Kinsella, sing hymns and create crafts with the residents. The culmination of this relationship is the NHS sponsored Walk to raise money for the Center.

On Friday, March 24 the National Honor Society hosted a Walk to benefit the Lauderdale Lakes Alzheimer’s Care Center. This year NHS raised over $5,600! All member raised money. We had 99% participation in the event. Students wore their NHS shirts and after school made their way out to the West Campus to walk for support of the Center.

Chairman Kayla McCracken and others will be recognized at the Lauderdale Lakes City Commission meeting in April. Several directors from the center came out to participate as well. Congratulations students for raising such a generous amount for the Alzheimer’s Center.

A special thank you goes to Offerdahl’s for donating bagels for those who participated in the Walk.
