LHS National Honor Society hosts Red-Out Game this Friday
The Laurel National Honor Society has been selling red shirts for $8 each this week in association with the American Heart Association. The Red-Out game will be Friday, Feb. 10 when the Lady Locomotives face Glendive at 7:30 p.m. in Laurel. Shirts can be bought before, during and after the game with all the proceeds going to the AHA for research.
LHS teachers Mr. Scott and Mrs. Bennington helped put the event together.
“It is our fifth year participating with them [AHA],” said Bennington. “ Come and support our girls and the cause.”
Laurel raised the most money in the entire state last year and received a plaque for their accomplishment.
The National Honor Society also purchased shirts for every Lady Locomotive to wear during warmups and for the cheerleaders as well.
Teammates Osbourne, Jarecke, Linse and Allen all have their own personal reasons for participating in the fundraising event as each of them has either had experience with the disease or gets fulfillment from helping their community.
The academic club requires 15 hours of community service each year and NHS will have more fundraising events in the future for good causes.
