Solar Car Team Shines Bright!

Congratulations to the NMS Solar Car Race Crew. 39 students took home top honors as the Runner-up School in Saturday's regional competition.

A well-designed car backed with intelligent ladies, numerous heat winners and the best display of teamwork ever witnessed made this win possible. Congratulations to all crew members!

A special thank you to Jonathan Stavnheim, for donating his time and energy to our school.
