North Allegheny Senior High Students Pay It Forward

NASH students were busy last week performing acts of kindness to Pay It Forward. Keep reading to learn how these students are making a difference in their communities!

Carrying groceries for people at local stores, creating welcome bags for the Ronald McDonald House, delivering food to the homeless in the Strip District, and fashioning handmade blankets for babies at hospitals are just some of the generous acts of kindness NASH students were performing this past week to #PayItForward.

4 years ago after watching the movie Pay It Forward, Mrs. Omasits was inspired to design a project for her students that would allow them to come up with original ideas centered around performing acts of kindness.

Juniors in Academic English 3, alongside their teachers, Ms. Yakich and Mrs. Omasits, were tasked with this project last week. Students were responsible for brainstorming ideas, creating a plan of action, and finally executing that plan. These projects were a week long and the students documented their process by blogging daily, filming video and taking photos. At the end of the project, students created final videos detailing their challenges and successes.

Today, we'd like to celebrate and shine a light on the good work NA students have been focusing on to help create a better and kinder world. #KindnessStartsWithOne
