Recently our National Junior Honor Society members participated in a service project. Students spent time at school tying blankets for the Hunstman Cancer Center and then had the opportunity of delivering those blankets to cancer patients. These blankets help keep patients warm as they have treatment. We thank all teachers and students involved.
