According to a recent press release, Zoelle Morrissey, from Bishop Stang High School, has been selected by the MSAA as the Massachusetts National Honor Society Student of the Year for 2020. She exemplifies the very tenants the NHS stands for in our state. Her love of music has been transformed into a great fundraising activity for her Chapter. Playing with her brothers in a band has led to many fundraisers that have supported several organizations in the community.

Her most impressive accomplishment is raising $50,000 for the Immigrant Assistance Center. The proceeds of the concert funded a program at local high schools that works directly with children of immigrants to keep them safe and in school. The band was also nominated for the "Youth of the Year Award," which covers the SouthCoast, for "outstanding efforts in community service." Zoelle also writes an online blog for The Standard Times, SouthcoastToday.org.

Congratulations to Zoelle, Bishop Stang High School, her fellow NHS Chapter Members, her advisor, and of course her band of brothers.
