PHS Receives the Michael Smith Memorial Award (September 2015)
On September 24, 2015, Portsmouth High was honored at the annual High School Hero Dinner hosted by the Rhode Island Blood Center. Last year 65 high schools in RI conducted blood drives. PHS was recognized first for being the top school in our size category (200-300 seniors) and then received the Michael Smith Memorial Award as the top donating school in Rhode Island for the 416 donations we contributed last year. It was definitely a Patriot PRIDE night.
