NHS Class of 2013 Valedictorians
Ken Johnson, former defensive end for the Cincinnati Bengals from 1970 - 1977 visited NHS to talk to students about making good choices. He was drafted by the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers, but chose the NFL instead. Mr. Johnson shared with the students his personal story:
I was raised in a home with good values, but in my college years I made some bad decisions and chose to use alcohol and drugs. The intense pressure of competition was the excuse that many of my teammates and I gave for our drug use. I believe drugs lowered my potential as an athlete and a student. When I turned my life over to Christ., I found He gave me the strength to deal with the pressure and brought true happiness and peace in my life that drugs just could not give.
Students reacted positively to his story and many stuck around to get his autograph.We would like to thank Mr. Johnson for coming our way and motivating our students to never give up and for the tools he gave us to do just that!Gallery
On March 22nd, a new law was enacted in order to curb distracted driving. This law says that Individuals who use handheld communication devices will be subjected to fines and penalties. In order to raise awareness for the dangers of texting and driving, the Ohio State Highway Patrol and American Family Insurance sponsored an art contest for southern Ohio high school students. Northwest's own Courtney Dowdy received top honors in this year's competition. Her drawing will be displayed on a billboard located on US Rt. 23 in Rosemount.
