  • NEHS is a wonderful organization. Personally, I love the community service exposure students receive and how they get to experience these opportunities firsthand at such a young age.
  • Being a member of the NEHS has had an inspirational impact on students who have not yet met this goal. While our school is in a gifted/talented environment, membership in the NEHS has raised the bar for many students.
  • I enjoy being involved in the community and being able to guide my students in enrichment activities that help build good character and strengthen their love for service.
