The Severna Park High School’s National Honors Society raised over $700.00 to support people with developmental disabilities. The club organized a 1920’s themed dance fundraiser at the Shipley’s Choice Clubhouse for Bello Machre on Monday, March 25, 2013 with over 100 people in attendance.
Bello Machre and the Severna Park National Honors Society have been working together for over three years. With 450 members, the National Honors Society’s mission is character, leadership, scholarship, and service focusing on making a difference in their community. Tracy Lynott, Development Director commented, “Severna Park National Honors Society has made a difference at Bello Machre. The students amaze me every time they come out to volunteer. We are honored to work with such an inspirational, community-minded group of young men and women.”
Jenna Fisher, Severna Park High School student and a National Honors Society committee chairperson, was instrumental in organizing the event. She stated, “As high school students, we like to go out and have fun. Why not have fun and support a good cause at the same time? That’s just what we did. Our 1920’s themed dance fundraiser was a huge success!”
The organizers included Severna Park High School students Jenna Fisher and Lyla Doyle, as well as band members, who Jenna refers to as the Honors Society Band, Tony Guarino, Adam Narimatsu, Cory Chubb, and Dan Joy.
