SHREWSBURY – In May, leaders of Shrewsbury High School’s National Honor Society chapter donated $1,334.00 to the American Cancer Society.
Monique Suarez, a senior development manager for the society, traveled to the school to accept the donation on the organization’s behalf.
The National Honor Society raised the money from Coffeehouse, the group’s annual fundraiser.
According to Susan Eriole, a school counselor and one of the club’s advisers, the event “showcased student talent in singing, instrumental, and spoken word performances.”
All 147 members helped the event succeed, Eriole said.
Students took the stage to perform while their peers watched in the audience, enjoying several snacks and – of course – coffee throughout the event.
NHS members voted on which organization to donate the proceeds to, ultimately choosing the cancer society.
