Under the tenure of the decorated veteran ELA teacher Ms. Jody Liu, who recently added NHS to her full plate (she’s already in charge of our very popular Asian Club), the MHS National Honor Society held its first charity drive fundraiser with food from Medford’s own local Mexican restaurant: Tenoch. For $10, Tenoch brought its truck to MHS, and everyone (from faculty to students) enjoyed various Mexican fare, while donating to the NHS. The food was scrumptious, the attitude and vibe upbeat, and most importantly, the NHS raised over $200 towards its drive.
Seniors and National Honor Society members Regine Jacques and Kin Chau both had positive and happy remarks. “The Tenoch Fundraiser last half day was a success!” Kin proudly replied. “We made over 75 pre-orders and had many side orders at the truck. I think it went so smoothly because we had a coordinated system where we delivered and alphabetized the orders for the students. The flyers and posters created by the NHS helped greatly in terms of convincing people to pre-order. The prices weren’t that bad either!” Regine Jacques agreed, adding on to Chau’s perspective of the event. “I thought it was successful and organized as well. We made a lot of money for Tenoch and the charity. The best thing at the end of the day was that everyone was happy.” As for another Tenoch fundraiser, Jacques quickly answered, “There is a possibility that since it was so successful there could be a round 2 of Tenoch and Medford High!”
Thanks to the MHS community and our sponsor Tenoch, and kudos to the superintendent for joining the fun.
