The NEHS National Adviser of the Year Award has been established to recognize outstanding NEHS advisers for their leadership and commitment to the purposes of NEHS. Each award year, one NEHS adviser will be selected among the submissions to be recognized as the National Adviser of the Year. The recipient will receive a plaque recognizing his or her leadership and an honorarium in the amount of $500.
Any National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) adviser with at least three years of experience can be nominated by their school principal. Nominees who have demonstrated a professional commitment to their chapter and the purposes of the Honor Societies as evidenced by successful chapter functions at the local level are ideal nominees for this national recognition. Recommendations from the principal and a member of the NEHS chapter must accompany the application. Principals from schools with active NEHS chapters may nominate their chapter adviser. All nominees must come from a school that maintains an active NEHS chapter, duly chartered and affiliated with the national office.
Congratulations to this year’s winner, Donna Tippin from Bryant Elementary School in Tampa, FL. Tippin has served as the NEHS adviser at Bryant Elementary School for six years. In that time, she has regularly overseen successful chapter service activities including toy drives and reading to animals at the Humane Society.
