Highlights from Trailblazing Leadership Week 2022
This was one of the most impactful and meaningful weeks in NASSP history.
For the first time ever, we brought together the top 25 NHS Scholarship recipients and 2021 Principals of the Year for Trailblazing Leadership Week in Washington, DC. The experience was powerful and transformative.
Here are a few of the things we’ve done this week:
- Organized a meeting for principals and NHS students to share their lived experiences, challenges, and solutions with U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona and his staff.
- Hosted the first-ever NHS Scholarship Gala to honor the students’ incredible accomplishments.
- Made NHS history by introducing four new scholarships based on the four NHS pillars.
- Sent principals to the White House to meet with officials, including First Lady Jill Biden, about the most pressing issues in Education.
- Worked it out for Beth Houf, our 2021 National Principal of the Year, to throw out the first pitch at a Washington Nationals game.
