Northumberland High School began a new tradition last year, and continued it this year. Teachers nominate students and then select one to be ambassador for the school, as well as being a role model for the younger students.
“Last year’s recipient was Trinity Bea,” said Principal, Dr. Travis Burns. “Trinity Bea is currently attending the United States Military Academy at West Point.”
“The Indian of the Year is a graduating senior (Class of 2018) who exemplifies the qualities of scholarship, leadership, altruism, sportsmanship, courtesy, conscientiousness, and civic virtue.” Dr. Burns explained about the program. “The student’s graduation portrait will be displayed prominently in the NHS hallway.”
