NEHS Updates


NEHSXpress will be published on June 15, July 13, and August 10 to keep Advisors apprised of any new initiatives or updates on current Society activity. The Central Office will be closed on Fridays as Northern Illinois University, whom we are affiliated with, adopts a four-day week during the summer. NEHS Central Office staff will continue to work in a hybrid mode most of the summer, with most personnel working from home; however, the office is open and staff is available for inquiries Monday through Thursday. Feel free to contact us as the need arises, either by calling (815) 981-8682 or via email at, and we will answer your questions as soon as possible.

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Cami Badman, Sullivan High School, Sullivan, IL, and Christopher Lockwood, Instituto Blaise Pascale, Oaxaca, MX, to the NEHS Advisory Council. Badman takes the place of Stephanie Robertson, Midwest Region representative, who is retiring at the end of May. Lockwood joins the Council as our International Region representative. Both are already actively participating in Society work and are available if you have any questions about chapter activities. Contact information may be found at
