Gov. Mifflin advisor nominated for national award

Nancy Brady of Governor Mifflin High School has been named a finalist for the 2013 Warren E. Shull High School Student Council Adviser of the Year Award. The award is sponsored by the National Association of Student Councils (NASC) and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). Brady is one of seven finalists from which a national winner will be announced during NASC’s annual conference in Nevada scheduled for June 22-24, 2013.

She has served as adviser of the Governor Mifflin High School Student Government Association (SGA) since the 2000-2001 school year. She served as an instructional aide at the Governor Mifflin Middle School for 16 years and also advised the Governor Mifflin Middle School Student Council for 25 years. In 1991 she received the Pennsylvania Association of Student Councils (PASC) Middle Level Advisor of the Year award. Brady was named 2012 High School Advisor of the Year by PASC.

“The finalists for the Warren E. Shull Award are skilled high school educators who epitomize the commitment student council advisers make to engage students in their own learning, leadership, and service,” said Jeff R. Sherrill, associate director, National Association of Student Councils. “Congratulations to Nancy Brady for her exemplary efforts to nurture these qualities for the benefit of this and future generations.”

Under Brady’s leadership, Governor Mifflin student government groups have organized dozens of food/supply drives for disaster relief agencies and deployed military troops, coordinated important school events, such as Homecoming Week, brought to the student body a variety of motivational speakers and assembly programs, such as the Keep It! Campaign, and implemented major fundraising projects, such as the Governor Mifflin mini-THON, which has raised over $100,000 for the Four Diamonds Fund.
