Crayon Drive Benefitting St. Jude's Children's Hospital

During the fall semester, the Honors students conducted a crayon drive to benefit St. Jude's Children's Hospital. The students also made handmade cards to send to the patients. We collected 150 boxes of crayons that will be delivered on November 16 by Thompson Wagoner and his family during his return visit for his checkup. T Nash is one of our hometown heroes that has been a patient at St. Jude's Hospital.

Breakfast Meeting

On October 7, 2015, the Elite Honors Scholars held their bi-weekly breakfast meeting at the Honors House. They had the "Big Reveal" of the new students' names on the "Family Tree" on the wall which indicated who each group had selected as their new link. The link system is a form of mentoring and each link includes a senior, a junior, a sophomore, and a freshman elite.
