051920-From the Desk of the Director

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Jessica McCole, Heritage High School, Ringgold, GA, as a new Southern Region Advisory Council members. Ms. McCole takes the place of Cathy Power who is retiring at the end of May.

NEHSXpress will be published on June 16, July 14, and August 11 to keep Advisors apprised of any new initiatives or updates on current Society activity through the summer, with normally scheduled newsletters resuming on August 25. Many questions exist concerning the emerging plans for opening schools in the fall; over the summer, we will be detailing suggestions for holding NEHS meetings as well as induction ceremonies when school resumes.

Central Office staff will continue to work from home over the coming months, pending decisions by the state of Illinois. If questions arise, please email and we will answer your questions as soon as possible. Please note: our long-time Office Manager, Karen Larsen, is retiring at the end of May. Many of you have called the office and have learned to appreciate Karen’s helpful manner. We know you join us in wishing her well.
