National Honor Society sells a Record Amount of Sandwiches


Jonathan Williams, Editor-in-Chief

Each month National Honor Society, NHS, sells sandwiches to raise money for a local charity. The sandwiches are provided by Schlotzsky’s Deli at a discount to NHS and are delivered by the members to those who purchase the sandwiches.

“I really hope our members continue to give their time and money long after they graduate from HHS. Sometimes in life, one has more money than time, while at other times, one has more time than money. Regardless, it’s so important to be generous with our resources because there are so many needs all around us,” NHS advisor Angela Gaston said.

In October, NHS sold a record 530 sandwiches. Typically, NHS sells 200-250 sandwiches each month.

“We all love the fundraiser. It’s a great way for us to earn money for charity and give back. The fact that we sold so many sandwiches in October is amazing, it definitely will be hard to beat,” junior Evelyn Williams said.

This year NHS is benefiting the Boys and Girls Club, HEARTS Veterans Museum, Good Shepherd Mission, Care Center of Huntsville, Senior Center of Walker County, and Hospitality House.

“Since we have been doing this for six years, NHS has gotten a reputation for being ‘the sandwich club.’ I don’t mind that label at all because I’m very proud that our members work so hard to help local charities meet the needs around them,” Gaston added.

NHS delivers to teachers at all campuses, as well as local businesses if they order from one of the many members.

“The Schlotzsky’s sale is a great opportunity for us to help many parts of the Huntsville community,” junior Thomas Williams said.
