NHS Advocates Heart Health

The month of February is Heart Health month and the National Honor Society takes it seriously. Each year, they advocate for heart health by sponsoring Jump Rope for a Cause. Senior high students can volunteer to jump rope for a full minute, earning themselves a sweet treat and a monetary donation courtesy of the NHS to the American Heart Association. This year, sixty students participated, which allowed the NHS to make a donation of $150 on behalf of the Tully student body in memory of Thomas Reardon. Mr. Reardon was the father of seventh grade history teacher Kelly Bovi. In addition, students that were old enough and had parent permission were allowed to donate blood to the American Red Cross. Staff got involved in this too, during their free time. Over forty people signed up to donate blood, helping the NHS reach beyond their goal of 23 units. Tully is very proud to see our students and staff volunteer in such a meaningful way!
