NJHS to landscape near Building 16

The National Junior Honor Society is gearing up for its mission to beautify potions of landscaping at the school. In their May 5 service project, NJHS members will be spreading mulch, planting sod and placing stepping stones outside Building 16, widely seen as a less aesthetically pleasing part of campus.

“We’re taking the sand pit behind the boy’s locker [room] and next to the student parking lot and making it look better and be more accessible,” NJHS president Kaitlin Inganna said.

Members are confident that the new walkway has more than just curb appeal.

“We’re putting the stepping stones as a walkway to make walking more efficient by the locker rooms,” Historian Amanda Moscrip said. “More people will use that way, it will be faster and NJHS will be recognized for that.”

Inganna agreed.

“I know that I speak for all athletes when I say, ‘the annoying sand will no longer be here? Great!'” she said. “But this will also benefit the drama group and all students.”

NJHS officers also view the refurbishing project as a transition into the 2012-13 school year.

“This will have a very positive outcome,” Moscrip said. “It’s a great start to our new year with new members.”
