SWR High School National Honor Society members recently hosted Organ Donor Enrollment Day. This year, the fifth annual nationally recognized event held special meaning in the District as it also memorialized two district students, Thomas Cutinella and Melissa Marchese, who both helped to save lives of others as organ donors. “This was a heartfelt gesture among our students and staff, who came out and supported this important endeavor,” said Principal Mr. Frank Pugliese, who also praised NHS President William Cutinella for spearheading the event and social studies teachers Mrs. Maria Lovasco and Mr. Russell Mitchinson who co-advise the NHS students. The event raised awareness and also enrolled more than 60 students and staff members in the national organ donor registry.
