The King William High School Chapter of the National Honor Society, students, and staff worked together to collect hats, scarves, and mittens. The warm clothing decorated a tree located in the King William High School Library and served as a reminder to students of the importance of giving. The drive began on December 5th and ended December 16th with over fifty warm clothing items collected. All items collected will go to "Christmas Dreams," serving children in King William and West Point.
The King William High School National Honor Society, led by Mrs. Kimberly Hicks, promoted the warm clothing event and encouraged all students and staff to donate. It is the mission of the NHS to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character. Already this year, the NHS has participated in several community service projects, including: cleaning up Route 30, participating in tutoring at the high school and elementary levels, and assisting the Head Start program. Community service is an integral part of the National Honor Society. NHS members are required to donate 10 hours per semester towards community service and an additional 5 hours towards tutoring
