A recap on the community bike ride
The District Pride Community Ride bike tour was a success for the National Honor Society (NHS). The communities of Dimondale and Holt came together on Saturday Mar. 11 to bike the town of Holt.
Superintendent, David Hornak said, “I am beyond impressed with the ability of the National Honor Society students. This was a large scale event that crossed over two communities in two different counties. The amount of planning and preparation required was incredible. This event was definitely one that deserves a wow, wow, super, wow!”
Even though the weather was a bit cloudy and unexpected, there was still a turn out of over 200 people. Not only did community members come, but teachers and students showed up to support National Honor Society. Both the Delhi police and the MSU police tagged along for the ride as well.
“Everything turned out better than I expected. It was so surreal being at my event I had been planning for almost a year…” said senior Annie Hoang-Pham, president of the Holt chapter of NHS. “I have full intentions of leaving all my knowledge and tips on running the bike tour to the new leadership coming in next year. National Honor Society has full intentions to make this bike tour an annual event.”
At each school the riders visited, there were volunteers from the NHS team. The riders received water and collected raffle tickets to win prizes at the end of the tour. After the tour was over, there was pizza from Fat boys and drinks from the Golden Ram Coffee Shop. The NHS also bought toys, and collected gift card donations from local businesses for the prizes.
Said sophomore Tess Piper, “it was so much fun and I really enjoyed it...I hope it becomes an annual thing that we can all look forward to. I just want to thank Annie for all the work that she did. She worked really hard and it turned out perfect, so I hope they keep doing it.”
