Hi All,
This Friday's basketball game against Summit County Day is a VERY IMPORTANT GAME! Our boys basketball team just won their 13th game in a row, and we're 2nd in the MVC. (Correct me if I'm wrong, Minor). Summit is currently #1. They beat us earlier in the season, but now they're coming to our house. WE NEED A BIG CROWD THERE Friday night! Let's be LOUD AND PROUD of our Trojans! 
This is also our NCH Athletics Hall of Fame weekend! The inductees will be introduced on Friday night between the JV game and the Varsity game. 
If you haven't been to a basketball game yet this year, this is the game to go to! If you've been to some games, you know how fun this team is to watch!


The boys basketball team was featured on Channel 12 Sports last night for winning their 13th game in a row.  The link is below. Please share with your students in class.
Thanks, Coach Minor 
Congratulations to Charles Swain for receiving Miami Valley Conference Athlete of the Week!  The article is below. 

Charles Swain

North College Hill - Senior


Charles was an important part of two Miami Valley Conference wins last week to improve the Trojans to 11-2 overall and 6-2 in the Conference. Charles scored 27 points, made six three-pointers, grabbed 12 rebounds, had three steals, and took three charges. His senior leadership has helped the Trojans to have a successful season to date. He is averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per game in the Trojans’ last five contests. The squad is currently on a ten-game winning streak. What this write-up doesn’t mention is that Charles is so much more than an All-MVC performer on the court. His dedication to the game is simply amazing. The senior guard is a gym rat. He works out in the mornings before school. He carries a notebook with him to write notes about his progress and document new workout drills. Charles also uses a laptop to watch workout videos and then does that same workout at the gym. He carries a basketball with him at all times in his gym bag. Most importantly, Charles is an A student in the classroom! “Charles is a great basketball player, but an even better person,” said Coach Minor. 



Below is the NEW highlight video vs. Lockland.  Please take a couple minutes in class to SHARE with the students, family members and the community.  We appreciate it!  GO TROJANS!

This was our District 5 DECA Fall Leadership Conference.  It is the kickoff event for our DECA students as we embark on another DECA season.  For all new DECA members it is their first taste of what DECA is all about.  The conference held at Receptions Event Center in Fairfield includes ice-breaker activities so the students get to know DECA students from all of our district schools; a guest speaker, Jamal Keyes who is a leadership speaker who combines his message with magic; a leadership/motivational media presentation provided in a 3-screen presentation, and just some fun marketing based activities to engage the students in DECA, and a buffet lunch.  The schools in our district are: NCH, Hamilton-Badin, Ross, Colerain, Harrison, and Northwest.


Today, students participated in a presentation with HPAC, Health Professions Affinity Community.  HPAC is a student based program sponsored by Northeast Ohio Medical University and MediCorps.  They provide extra-curricular activities to high school students who are interested in the health professions with an emphasis on community outreach and health disparities.  HPAC is a newly designed pipeline program to engage students and advance their academic and career progress toward health professions.  If you have any questions or concerns in regards to this opportunity, please contact the school at, (513) 728-4783.
