A huge Highlands shout out to these three senior girls who represent a whole team of National Honor Society students assisting elementary students in the afterschool “Homework Help” program.
“I enjoy being involved in the Homework Help program,” shares Highlands senior Ruth Bien-Amie (left). “I’m helping kids excel and get what they need to succeed in school!” Along with volunteering in this excellent program, Ruth plays soccer, is active in the NHS, has worked with MOPS, and enjoys being on the yearbook staff.
Emilie Allen (middle) another senior involved in Homework Help, says she enjoys “learning how to teach and interact with children in a way they understand, and helping them be successful.” In addition to being a member of the NHS, Emilie plays volleyball and basketball, and serves as senior class vice president.
Allisa Ribeiro (right), also a Highlands senior and member of the NHS, says she loves children and is grateful for the opportunity to help elementary students. “I enjoy investing my time to help the younger generation with their work,” she shares. Allisa plays soccer, has volunteered in MOPS, and is a dedicated yearbook staff member.
“We are grateful for these seniors and all the National Honor Society members who take the time to invest in our younger Highlands students,” says Mrs. Utz, Elementary Principal. “We appreciate the time they take out of their own busy schedules, the fine example they provide, and the friendship they offer during this afterschool program.”
