On Friday, Oct. 28, the National Honor Society held their annual bake sale outside the cafeteria before school.

On Friday, Oct. 28, National Honor Society (NHS) hosted the event Sugar Wars to raise money for the People’s Resource Center, located in Westmont. NHS members baked treats for fellow students and sold them throughout the day.

Members split into teams to compete for various awards. Each team baked a wide variety of themed goods.

“I made chocolate chip pumpkin bread with a couple other people on my team and I would say that along with the skull cookies were definitely best sellers,” said Nysha Adusumilli, senior.

Other teams also did Halloween themed baked goods. Along with baked goods, members dressed into costumes and some even played music.

“I really enjoyed the whole process,” said Mai-Jeanna Sakho, senior. “I got to cook with my best friends and I had a great time making chocolate cupcakes that we decorate with sprinkles and eyes.” 

Members raised money in exchange for the baked goods for the People’s Resource Center. 

“We donated to the People’s Resource Center in Westmont and they are the same group we help when it comes to Stuff the Truck,” said Mallory Bauer, NHS sponsor. “They run a food pantry for a lot of our people in the area who have food insecurities.” 

The National Honor Society will also be hosting a Stuff the Truck Event this November. 

“Our next big event is Stuff the Truck, which is when we try to help the People’s Resource Center,” Bauer said. “We have different teams competing against each other to bring in the most amount of food and products.”
