NHREA Memorial Award

The NHREA Memorial Award is a tribute to the many retired and dedicated educators who provided education to the children of New Hampshire. They were instrumental in providing better programs to challenge all levels of abilities of New Hampshire youth. These same people worked to improve the various studies of the certification of educators and to improve the benefits for current educators as well as retirees. Our desire is to provide assistance to someone continuing the education of children.
