Board Announcement

In an effort to involve our chapter presidents in more activities while uniting them together to fully utilize the resources of NSSA, we are pleased to announce the creation of the NSSA Board. This board will consist of all chapter presidents, and its chairman will be Siddharth Maruvada from NSSA Raleigh.

We are also pleased to announce our new IEP Initiative Program, a newly launched program at the Raleigh chapter, where NSSA partners with elementary schools to work with students who have IEPs. The program is designed such that the student volunteers will teach public speaking skills while reinforcing key classroom concepts. This program not only benefits the students with IEPs by providing additional support that they need, but it will also benefit the student volunteers who will have the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience while learning life skills such as patience, compassion, and inclusiveness.

Additionally, Aniruth Narayanan, our former CEO, will be moving to a new role to help advise along with our prior executive team members.

New Board

Annoucement of a New Board Structure

June 30th, 2020


Due to our founders and the team graduating from high school and moving to college as well as a desire to expand our nonprofit's mission and impact, we have restructured the organization to consist of an executive team of college students and chapters of high school student officers. We're very excited with what is in store.

Additionally, to reflect these new changes, we have rebranded our logo and color scheme with a newly designed website meant to reflect this step forward.

Meeting With McNICHOLS

We are very thankful to McNICHOLS for guiding us on our path as we try and create a plan for the future as well as for being a donor to our mission. McNICHOLS is centered around being "inspired to serve", about tenets of leadership and service to the community and our society, and we hope to be able to emulate their success.

Not only was this a great opportunity to get some feedback, we walked away with new ideas and thoughts about what we can do to have a positive impact. We look forward to hopefully working with them in the future as well.
