NHS Valentine’s Day Flower Sale


Wadsworth High School’s National Honors Society (NHS) held its Valentine’s Day flower sale this past week. Students had the opportunity to purchase any number of flowers they wished for the person of their choice. Money earned from this project will go toward a number of organizations of their choosing.

Beyond donating money to these organizations, Nate Singleton, head of NHS along with Mrs. Rosenberger, stated that the intention of this endeavor was simple.

“The purpose of the flower sale is simple: build community,” said Singleton. “Getting students to care and go out of their way to purchase a flower is a simple gesture that can go a long way to helping build a positive community.”

Logistically, each individual flower was $2. There were three categories of flowers that the purchaser could choose in order to convey a personalized message to the receiver of their choice. Additionally, the buyer could send a card that would accompany the flower. Red flowers corresponded to love, pink to secret admirer or flirt, and yellow to friend. In total, the sale spanned three days.

“There were two days of presale and one morning of selling. However, we sold out of flowers this year during presale,” remarked Singleton. “We will raise $500, which will be used for Adopt a Family, Salvation Army, Membership renewal, etc.”

This project was ran by a committee of NHS students who created signs and sold and organized the flowers. Singleton and Rosenberger oversaw the process in its entirety.

    The Valentine’s Day flowers sale was incredible for me. I didn’t buy any flowers but, I got 2 flowers from my best friend, (Leah Mcnutt). I was so happy and Leah made me feel special.
