  • The Green High School National Honor Society (NHS) will present its inaugural Bulldog Scramble on Sept. 28 at Mayfair Country Club. Proceeds form the event will benefit the local chapter and its community outreach initiatives.
    The four-man scramble will begin with an 8 a.m. shotgun start. It includes 18 holes with a cart and features a breakfast buffet, light lunch and barbecue dinner. Awards will be presented in the evening.
    “We are excited at the opportunity to host this inaugural golf event this fall,” NHS co-advisor Doug Froelich said. “We’re looking forward to great participation from golfers in our community. Proceeds from the event will allow us to continue, and to expand, the scope of our service to the school and community.”
    The National Honor Society is the nation’s leading organization dedicated to recognizing high school students for excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership and character. The Green High School chapter boasts over 70 members.
    “One of the primary goals of our chapter is to provide meaningful service to the school and community,” co-adviser Kevin Finucan said. “Our service projects range from supporting various school projects, to cleanup projects in the community, helping local charitable organizations throughout the year, visiting local nursing homes during the holiday season, and the Senior Citizens Social, our major service project each year.”
    The Green High School chapter of the National Honor Society boasts over 70 members who perform over 900 hours of individual service per school year and, as a chapter, they dedicate nearly 1,200 hours of community service.
    In addition to seeking golfers to participate, the chapter is looking for local businesses interested in sponsoring the event in a variety of ways. Sponsorships, ranging from hole sponsors to dinner sponsors, are available at a variety of prices.
