Welcome back! I hope you had an excellent summer vacation that allowed you to recharge your batteries and energize yourself for another great year of activities, events, and programs with your Honor Societies and student councils. We at NASSP are excited for the new school year to begin and are ready to show you the new things we have been working on.

Advise is the new student leadership magazine redesigned just for YOU, the busy Honor Society and/or student council adviser. We have created shorter columns and made it easier for you to find your favorite sections faster. We have also added several new sections to the magazine that I know you will be excited to read.

The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time, as your student leaders return rested, energized, and raring to go for the year. It is a great time to look at the possibilities of recreating or refreshing past events and establishing new events and traditions for your school.

We are also pleased to present our NHS and NJHS chapters with a variety of new programs and services for advisers and students. More details can be found in the new Honor Society Update column on page 8. For the latest NASC news-including the winners of the Shull adviser awards-check out the new NASC Update column on page 6.

Happy reading! I know you are going to love the new look and features of Advise. Be sure to share your feedback and ideas with us by emailing [email protected].
