With October just beginning, National Honor Society (NHS) officers and members will work to promote the Ghost and Goblins 2K/5K run. After a successful start to the year, NHS sponsor Allison Malloy said she is excited to have officers.

She said, “I’m also excited, it’s not an event, just to have our officers because they drive a lot of the opportunities, of things that we offer, especially around the school, for service hours.”

NHS member and senior Jo Matsumoto said, “To be honest, I’m not really excited because of all the things that are going on right now. It’s half capacity, I don’t see half my friends and overall this whole school year right now is really weird, and it’s my senior year, so I don’t know, it’s kind of mixed feelings to be honest.”

He added that due to COVID-19, NHS events might be different than in previous years, dampening his enthusiasm.

However, according to Malloy, the Ghosts and Goblins run is a great way to benefit Carmel as a whole, and is a good volunteering opportunity for club members, although some aspects will most likely change due to COVID-19.

She said, “One of the things that I do traditionally look forward to is Ghosts and Goblins. I think it’s just a fun event, kids really enjoy it, the community enjoys it, and there’s a lot of money made for the Carmel Education Foundation.”
