Congratulations to Lisa Yates for winning the 2016 No Bell Award.

Nashua HS South Principal Keith Richard announced the award during the Class of 2016 graduation rehearsal Thursday, June 16 and surprised Ms. Yates with the presentation.

The Class of 2016 members of the Nashua HS South chapter of the National Honor Society voted her as an outstanding teacher who leads students; communicates enthusiasm and respect for the subject taught; inspires students to develop a hunger for learning; and serves as a role model for students. The annual award comes with a $6,000 cash award, made possible each year by an anonymous donor, and a school bell without a clapper to represent the many, unheralded efforts that Ms. Yates, like the previous 20 recipients of the No Bell Award, makes each day with her students.

The No Bell Award alternates between the two National Honor Society chapters at Nashua HS North and Nashua HS South.

Ms. Yates, who earned a Masters of Social Work with a family and children concentration and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Minnesota, teaches human relations courses at South.
