Do you feel that your NAGS education properly prepared you for high school and beyond? Yes!
What is your fondest memory of your time at NAGS?
Sister Laurian, I believe was the Sister’s name. She was older and she reminded you more of a drill sergeant than a teacher, I am an Episcopalian, I had come to NAGS from public school and she scared me. Then I realized just how much she cared. I never forgot her and I carried her caring along.
Do you have any advice for current students in making the most of their elementary education at NAGS?
Listen and never stop trying to exceed your own expectations of yourself. Keep your faith central in your life. And remember that practice does not stop at the Church or the classroom door.
Since we moved, I never got to graduate from NAGS. In fact I was only there two years but it has remained a part of me. Thank you!
