 Service Learning Successes
Jade Kim was one of 3 students to receive the Governor's Seal.  The other two were Rachael Johnson & Nyeela Hueholt.

Anthony Lotz has established Service Learning on Facebook as his contribution.

After Nyeeld Huehold, InterAct Club president, presented a $50 check to aid Haitian relief, sponsored by Shenandoah University, club members gather around the president of Shenandoah University.

On April 12, a group of NCHS students, chaperoned by Lynn Hanson and Jane Raup, traveled to Winchester to donate books and money to the Henry & William Evans Home for Children (which is affiliated with the Rotary Club).

On April 2, 2011, at the Sanctuary of the Haven, Charlottesville, Cody Burnley (far left) was one of ten area recipients of the United Way's Youth Services Award for his work with the Lovingston Volunteer Fire Department.

Both Cody and his parents attended the celebration of youth service in Charlottesville to see their son recognized for his service to the community.
