Raise a Paddle

Let’s honor the dedication and excellence of the NYA faculty!

When you raise a paddle at the Soirée you will provide increased professional development and growth opportunities for beloved teachers, add resources to stimulate intellectual inquiry, broaden the areas of study offered to NYA students, and ensure faculty can respond to students’ dynamic needs.

Thank you!
