The National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) at Remington College – Fort Worth Campus discovered a way to celebrate spring and raise a substantial donation for a good cause.

Several Easter baskets, assembled around themes, motivated members of the NTHS to sell raffle tickets to students, faculty, staff, and friends of the college.

Student Finance Associate Susan Knarr shows off the basket of goodies she won.

On Thursday, April 5, the school held the drawings and awarded the baskets to several lucky participants, including Student Finance Associate Susan Knarr and Computer and Network Administration Instructor Diane Miller. Perhaps the most-coveted prize went to Medical Assisting student Traci Wilson-Goodman, whose items in the “man’s basket” included tickets to a Texas Rangers baseball game.

As a result of the enthusiastic participation of students, faculty, staff, and friends of the college, the NTHS raised $650 and donated the proceeds to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The fundraiser is a tribute to the dedication of student members and their commitment to conducting activities that fund charitable events.  They worked so hard to guarantee such a successful event that, according to all reports, even the Easter Bunny was impressed.
