FAIRBURY – Senior and President of the National Honor Society Paul Mach told News Channel Nebraska, “I think, so far, we’ve had over 20 students.”
The Fairbury Junior – Senior High School National Honor Society hosted their annual blood drive, where any of the students over the age of 17 years old were able to donate blood to the Nebraska Community Blood Bank. School staff and members of the community also participated.
Along with hosting the blood drive, the student leaders also participate in “Read Across America.”
Mach says, “We go down to Central Elementary and we read to the students there.”
The high school’s National Honor Society is mostly made up of upperclassmen students, but Mach encourages freshman and sophomore students to pay attention and to not hesitate in joining when the Classes of 2017 and 2018 graduate.
Mach says, “It is a great organization, we do a lot of great things. It is an honor to be a part of it. I’m glad I’m a part of it, so don’t be afraid to submit your application.”
Mach spoke of his next steps in life, post graduation, “Next year I’ll be going to Wayne State and I’ll be studying Political Science and playing football.”
