When the snow piles up it’s a blessing to have a helping hand, that’s what Superior resident Eva Harrington discovered last Sunday afternoon.

“The kids were such a great help, they did a fantastic job,” remarked Harrington.

Harrington’s walkway was just one out of eight homes that Superior School’s National Honor Society shoveled and cleared snow from. Six of the members along with their advisor Angie Armour flung snow for about two hours around town.

“This seemed like a great time to do this event due to the recent snow that keeps coming in!” Armour said.

The assemblage of snow movers drove around Superior and looked for residents with homes that were in need of some assistance. Residents like Harrington who said she struggles with this winter task, “I’m not able to do that all on my own, plus the kids were very friendly and nice to talk to.”

Raising money was not the goal behind the efforts, part of being in National Honor Society means students have to complete at least 25 hours of volunteer service for the entire year.

Other projects the group has accomplished so far included teaching recycling to the Superior elementary students, collecting donations for Bobby and Johnna Henderson, and decorating the football bus for the state championship game.

It requires two letters of recommendation highlighting leadership and volunteering, as well as a minimum grade point average of 3.0 to qualify for National Honor Society.

Once accepted students must participate in one volunteer activity per month throughout the school year.

One member Summer Bonsell, came up with the idea of taking a couple of hours to go shovel snow for those in need in the community, the other students agreed this was a great January activity.

Armour stated that plans are being made for February’s volunteer work; most likely it will involve something for Valentines Day.

If community members have recommendations for upcoming volunteer undertakings messages can be left for Armour at 822-3600 extension 126.
