What a heartwarming start to the week. Marcus, a 7th grader and member of the Community Impact Club here at NEIA, dedicated himself to crafting a plaque featuring the signatures of both NEIA students and staff. With the support of the NEIA community, he also prepared 300 homemade cards. These heartfelt gestures were a tribute to Lieutenant Colonel Kenny, and the cards were presented to the brave members of the 416th Civil Affairs Airborne Battalion. This act of kindness illustrates the strength of belonging and togetherness, a crucial part of our pillars here at NEIA.
