The Central Kansas Community Foundation-USD 373 Education Endowment invites you to nominate an alumnus of Newton High School for the NHS Alumni Lifetime Achievement Award.
The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding alumni of Newton High School who have distinguished themselves in a significant way since graduating from high school. It may be someone who has had a highly successful career, or has been an outstanding community leader, or has a commendable record of service to others.
Newton High School has produced a number of outstanding graduates over the years and this award program recognizes their efforts. These alumni also serve as an inspiration for current NHS students, as they strive to create their own personal and professional roles in our community, state, nation and world.
This is the 10th year for the Alumni Lifetime Achievement Award. Recipients will be inducted during a reception in their honor in conjunction with NHS commencement activities in May. Recipients’ names will also be added to the NHS Alumni Wall of Fame, located inside the new main entrance to Newton High School.
Please consider nominating an alumnus for recognition. All nominations are due by April 15, 2015. To submit a nomination, go to http://tinyurl.com/5vublas.

The 2nd annual Birdies Against Bullying Golf tournament is just around the corner. This event is sponsored by the Newton Rotary Club and USD 373 in order to raise funds for our Rachel's Challenge initiative.
This program speaks to kids about many key things they can do to treat each other with kindness and respect, as well as seek out those among us who may be suffering and thinking of harmful things. In addition, the program also hopes to train 100's of student leaders within our schools who carry on the initiative throughout the school year in the form of various projects and acts of kindness.
