This is a very busy time for the NHS Alumni Association. The recipients of our scholarships will be announced at the Awards Night later this month. Several very deserving seniors will be recognized. We will present $14,000 in scholarships, and the grand total for all will be close to $250,000. Truly amazing!
The scholarship committee was chaired by Janet Webster Sheehan '47, with Linda Eusko Gallagher '62, and Deb Thurlow Kerr '77, serving as well.
The Yankee Homecoming All Class Reception is scheduled for Thursday, August 4, in the NHS Clipper Cafe starting at 7 pm.
