The Battle of Alamance Chapter, NSDAR held its first Chapter meeting of 2023 and honored Southern Alamance High School teacher Mr. Nick Anders with the NSDAR Conservation award.
During the presentation these remarks were said about Anders teaching career: "For twenty years, Mr. Anders has taught students the importance of protecting our natural resources and how food gets to our stores and tables. Several of his FFA teams have returned with National Awards and the department has grown to four teachers - two of which were his students a few years ago.
One of his passions has been to include all students, including those with special needs. He sees possibilities in every student, regardless of their challenges. He is encouraging, and because of this, several of his students have gone on to college due to his tutelage. We are proud to have given this award to Mr. Anders, who truly deserves it."
