Big thanks to NAHS PTA for hosting the final NAPPS meeting of the year. Over 25 “Stellar Seniors” were featured. Each student introduced themselves, where they are going to college, the study program they followed, what their major extra-curricular activities were, who their favorite teachers were and what advice they had for younger students and their parents. As always, the group was impressive, articulate and full of great information, as well as filled with great enthusiasm for their NAHS experience.  NAPPS wishes them and the rest of the Class of 2016 all the best in their future endeavors. Check out the list of NAHS 2016 College Acceptances.
