The National Honor Society recently decided to take their volunteering in a different direction. NHS members took time out of their busy holiday weekends to volunteer as holiday characters at Bentleyville-Tour of Lights. Students were able to chose their character and decided on penguins and Santa's reindeer. The students and their handlers walked around Bentleyville waving at those walking by and taking hundreds of pictures with both kids and adults. The NHS members participating included: Sage Gerard (penguin), Jessica Paull (penguin), Libbie Ring (reindeer), Tachi Charpenter (reindeer), Erika Kosloski (rotated in as a penguin), Andrew Mikrot (handler) and Courtney Laine (handler).
