Alumnus Catches Up With NHS
Updated: Jun 27
Noah Miller graduated from the Norman Howard School in 2021, and now is a freshman at Mercyhurst University majoring in social work. Noah was inspired by his involvement with the Best Buddies Club at NHS. He recently visited with some of his former NHS teachers, Mr. Ciluffo and Mr. Koffenberger. Noah was kind enough to describe his experience at The Norman Howard School to us:

How did NHS prepare you for your current career or college?
They taught me how to learn and gave me confidence that I could be successful in school. Everyone really cared about me and always did as much as they could to support me.
If you were to describe NHS to a student just starting out, what would you say?
Good luck, have fun, work hard, be thankful you’re here and ask for help when you need it!
If you were to describe what makes NHS special / different, what would you say?
The people make it different. Every teacher truly wants each of their students to be successful and become friends by the end of high school who follow you and keep supporting you even after you’ve left NHS. Make the most of your time at NHS because not everyone is lucky enough to be able to go someplace where they are seen as a person and respected for what they know and never treated like they have a learning disability.

Thank you Noah, best of luck to you on your future endeavors!
