PHS National Honor Society hosts Heroes vs. Hunger talent show
Prescott High School's National Honor Society presented the Heroes vs. Hunger Talent Show earlier this month to nearly 500 attendees at the Ruth Street Theatre. The show highlighted a variety of talent from the PHS student and faculty body. There were 28 acts, ranging from a flute and piano duet, students playing ukuleles, saxophones, electric guitars and more, including various dance productions and a poetry reading in honor of former PHS teacher, Derk Janssen. Between ticket sales and a raffle/auction at the show, which was strongly supported by local businesses, NHS was able to donate $3,000 to this year's beneficiary, the Granite Creek Hunger Ministries - a local organization which provides meals each Saturday for the less fortunate in our community.
NHS held its first talent show in 2010, Hope for Haiti, which benefited the Haitian children who were victims of a terrible earthquake. In 2012, NHS presented the Benefit for the Battle talent show that raised money for the Breast Cancer Center at Yavapai Regional Medical Center. The National Honor Society at Prescott High School is an organization based on four pillars: character, scholarship, leadership, and service. Students who are members of the society are dedicated to helping the citizens of their community through service opportunities.
