Starting in November of 2020, National Honor Society members could sign up to work volunteer hours at the Pike Outreach food pantry. Students worked from 9am-noon or noon-2:30 on the days they signed up. During these times, students helped with carrying packages to cars and stocking the food pantry. Over the course of five months, NHS members clocked just over 200 hours of volunteering. The NHS would like to thank food pantry manager, Autumn May-Topping for her help in setting up the program. Topping stated, "It was so amazing working with these young adults. I'm so glad that they had an opportunity to come in, help out, and see those less fortunate. I will definitely be looking forward to next year, working with these wonderful young men and women."
On March 11th, two Waverly teams competed in the 9th annual South Central Regional Science Bowl. Unlike past years, the teams did not travel to Shawnee State University to compete. Instead, officials from the Fluor-BWXT traveled to Waverly High School. Teams competed individually in separate rooms and then scores were compared to all other teams that competed. Waverly 1, consisting of Jenna Thompson, Eric Patton, Brock Adams, Julia Clark, and Waylon Lamerson, came in 6th overall out of 23 teams. Waverly 2, consisting of Britton Kritzwiser, Josh Heigley, Aidan Peoples, Greenlee Thacker, and Ben Flanders, placed 20th. This was a very interesting year and both teams look forward to returning to the regular format stated advisor Amanda Entler.
The Waverly High School Quiz team placed 1st in the the Pike, County Tournament! Team advisor and members include Amanda Entler (advisor), Brody Holderness, Eric Patton, Greenlee Thacker, Chris Zabala, and Britton Kritzwiser. Great job Tigers!
