Happy Saturday Scholars! It’s been a great week for NSCS-from exciting new programs launching to finally feeling the sunshine (yes, we’re celebrating that big time at our HQ in DC!) of spring. Most exciting, so many of you have been sharing your success with us-internships, graduation pics, where you’re heading to college…it’s such a joy to hear & we’re way proud of you! So keep it up-find us on Facebook & Twitter, tell us what summer 2014 has in store for you…now here’s your Top 3.

Nokia is presenting an Innovation Challenge-collaborating on game changing innovation…the kind of ideas which will shape the future of the telecommunications industry. Really cool to see these big companies looking to US to mold the comm. future.

We’re thrilled to announce Torch & Laurel-an honors program (developed by NSCS) to recognize high school high-achievers & provide them/their families with the vital tools to successfully transition to college-had a HUGE week! T&L awarded $20,000 in scholarships to incredible high school students!!! Finances aren’t always top of mind when thinking about the move to college; programs like T&L offer ample opportunities to help make furthering education a reality.  Congratulations to these deserving scholars & their families!
