OCHS Honor Societies Help to "Stamp Out Hunger"

Today, members of the Oklahoma Centennial National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society participated in what I hope will become a regular service project by helping sort food collected by the Oklahoma City Letter Carriers for their annual "Help Stamp Out Hunger" food drive. They unloaded and sorted over 20 mail delivery trucks full of food items. These food items will be taken to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to be distributed to the many charitable agencies in Oklahoma involved in the fight against hunger.

One of the four tenants of the National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society is "Service," and the five young ladies who participated in this event. Demika Martin, Audrianna Morgan, LaTreha Jackson, Brittany Horton and Brandy Horton, acted in the best tradition of the Honor Societies. Thank you ladies, you make me very proud to be your faculty sponsor.
