The NHS of CTA, with rakes in hand, walked around the city of Cedar Springs on November 21, 2009, looking for some leaves to rake and, thereby lend a helping hand.  “The goal was to find some leaves to rake and spread some early holiday cheer by doing something for someone else without being asked, “said student, Kaitlyn Cooper.

Kaitlyn came up with the idea after being taught that NHS is all about finding out where one can make a difference in the environment around them.  Mr. Verwey, a science teacher at CTA and newly elected NHS advisor, mentioned that “it was really rewarding to be there with the students who went out looking for someone to help.”

The National Honor Society values fit in well with the philosophy of the Academy which seeks to encourage students to make positive choices and serve their communities.
