On Thursday, April 30, 2015, the Selective Corporate Internship Program (SCIP), a New York based youth leadership organization, celebrated its 18th anniversary of making a difference in the lives of tomorrow's leaders at its Evening with The Stars Gala at Battery Gardens in New York City. Mr. Nobel was the 2014 recipient of SCIP’s Humanitarian of the Year Award.
At the gala, NSHSS was proud to recognize 18 young leaders participating in SCIP’s Summer Leadership Program with membership in the Society.
