The eXcel Leadership Academy connects rising high school juniors and seniors to community, business and government leaders in our region to develop their understanding of leadership in the business world and the inner workings of our region to prepare them for future leadership positions. During the four-day leadership academy, they participated in team-building exercises, conflict resolution models and dialogue with community leaders. They also traveled to local businesses, non-profit organizations, hospitals and local government offices for a behind the scenes tour and activities focusing on the various leadership styles and environments.
The Office of College Counseling Welcomes New College Counselor
The Office of College Counseling is thrilled to welcome Karen Del Vecchio to the NSA family. Raised primarily in the Hampton Roads area as part of a military family, Ms. Del Vecchio has spent time in both the education and equestrian fields prior to joining NSA. She graduated in 2009 from Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA, with a B.A. in Psychology and three years of admissions experience that encouraged her interest in the college admissions field.
Ms. Del Vecchio continued on to The College of William & Mary where she created a college admissions informational website during the course of completing her M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration in 2011. After spending two years working full-time in the equestrian field, she worked in alumni relations at Norfolk Academy. Outside of school, she enjoys spending time at the barn with her two horses, Artica and Indigo. Please join us in welcoming Ms. Del Vecchio to NSA!
