Throughout the halls on Tuesday, March 6th, students and staff were met with an array of colorful, paper hearts that adorned the walls. Each heart bore a name; some might have been identified as friends or classmates, while others could have been just an unrecognizable jumble of letters. One thing is certain, though: each and every one of them matters.
This act of kindness was courtesy of the Foley National Honors Society and the Leo Club, whose members stayed after classes to write each and every name belonging to the student body and faculty on a cut-out heart. The hearts were then hung according to the students’ homerooms, displayed proudly along the walls and lockers for all to see and appreciate.
NHS secretary Lucy Harkins explained the significance behind #YouMatter. “National Honors Society (and the Leo Club) were trying to make a positive impact in such a dark time,” Harkins claimed. #YouMatter was chosen specifically so that, as Harkins worded, “students know that we all care for one another.”
