Wednesday, April 29th is slated for NCA’s long awaited, and highly anticipated, Day of Service! Mr. Corey Thompson, Dean of Student Affairs here at NCA shared with us the ins and outs of the Day of Service, as well as what to expectfor this event:
“On Wednesday, April 29th, our entire Middle and High School student body will participate in our annual “Day of Service,” a full day of giving back to our community by working with various ministries and local organizations! Many of our Elementary classes have also decided to participate as well by completing projects with their teachers that day!
The theme for this annual project is “Leading By Serving.”
The day will begin with a breakfast at NCA, followed by a brief challenge on the importance of servant-leadership.
