NSHSS Summer Break: Disney & Universal Tour 2022

NSHSS members celebrated summer break at Disney & Universal!!


At the end of the 2022 school year, NSHSS wanted to celebrate our members and all of their accomplishments by taking a group of students on a memorable vacation in Orlando, Florida!

NSHSS members and their guests started their summer break off with a bang on an exciting five day trip to Disney World and Universal Studios! Some students were celebrating their graduation and some just wanted to celebrate completing another year of high school or college, but for everyone, it was the perfect time to take a break from school and let loose with back-to-back days of adventure at each of these three parks.
