2021 National Elementary Honor Society National Adviser of the Year Award

About the Award:

The NEHS National Adviser of the Year Award has been established to recognize an outstanding NEHS adviser for their leadership and commitment to the purposes of the National Elementary Honor Society. While the award does single out individuals, one purpose of the award is to highlight the contributions made by all NEHS advisers. NASSP will select one recipient for the NEHS National Adviser of the Year Award. The honoree will receive a plaque and honorarium in the amount of $500.
