NHS tutors win “Champions of Change Award”

On Sept. 19 the New York State School Boards Association presented the Niskayuna High School’s Academic Resource Center with a “Champions of Change Award.”

The distinction honors the hard work of high school students who offer peer tutoring.

The Champions of Change award is a non-competitive award determined by a committee which reviews e-clips for innovative programs in our schools.

Several years ago, Niskayuna’s STEAMbus was also recognized through this program.

Student tutors pictured with the BOE include: Ahiri Garde, Titi Oshinowo, Ningning Ying, Reeya Dhinesh, Iris Liu, Lily Graham, Simran Utturkar, Mahima Mukherjee, and Nina Knezevic along with faculty advisor Donna McAndrews.
