At the event, there was approximately 1,500 students, parents and teachers present in the Lisner Auditorium to recognize NSHSS student's achievements and leadership skills. So many walked on stage to receive thousands of dollars in scholarships! It was very impressive. After listening to all the young scholars on stage today, I have a renewed hope in our future! What amazing young people.
Please consider logging on to their site to fill out an application to be a member. NSHSS has unique learning experiences for students from international study, internships, volunteer opportunities and so much more. They also give more than one million dollars in exclusive scholarships to support college tuition and travel to attend conference and seminars, just like the one I attended today. This is a great opportunity for all of you. Blanche Ely HS students contact me if you need any assistance. I now know the President, Vice President and Scholarship Coordinator to NSHSS. I will help you in any way I can! Even though I live in DC, I am only an email or text message away.
Just a little background about this organization. NSHSS is founded by the grandson of Ludvig Nobel and grand nephew to Alfred Nobel who established the Nobel Prizes. Claes Nobel founded the NSHSS in 2002. Today, I was humbly honored to walk on stage to accept The Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction recognition, along with 16 other teachers from across the country. Thank you NSHSS for a lovely ceremony. It was an honor to attend.
