The award is fitting given May 6-10 is Teacher Appreciation Week, one of several occasions when NHA celebrates and recognizes the dedication and passion teachers bring to the classroom daily to transform lives.
“Our people are our most valuable resource. Staying true to our core values and taking care of our employees is paramount to our success as a company.
