LOCAL HONOR STUDENTS FIND THEMSELVES “IN THE DOG HOUSE” WITH SERVICE PROJECT
On Saturday, Oct. 6, Quincy Junior High School (QJHS) students involved with the National Junior Honor Society will perform a service project at the City of Quincy Animal Shelter (1800 N. 24th) from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Students will spend the day cleaning kennels and walking and bathing dogs. They are also collecting items such as food, blankets, collars, treats, toys, and cleaning supplies to deliver to the shelter. The public is encouraged to donate items, which may be dropped off at QJHS (14th & Maine).
“This is a great opportunity for the students to give back to their community,” said QJHS counselor Jackie Martin. “My hope for this project is that students come away with the realization that volunteering can be a fun and rewarding experience.”
Students are selected by a faculty council. To be eligible for the National Junior Honor Society, students must have a GPA of 3.8 and meet high standards of leadership, service, citizenship and character. For more information, contact Martin at 217-222-4334.
