NHHS Experience: While there are many to choose from, I think my most memorable high school experience was the Europe trip during sophomore year. Although it was not my first time visiting Europe, getting the chance to see many of the famous landmarks with some of my classmates and closest friends was truly extraordinary. I feel privileged to have experienced Europe in such a unique way.
