Favorite aspect of your school: The school spirit and involvement we have. The school spirit is what makes school, sports, and other activities fun! Neenah has a very supportive staff and that's what makes our school special. 

If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? Our captains council put on an event called "Phase II." It was a Special Olympics basketball game against out very own staff. It was treated like a regular boys' basketball game in the Ron Einerson Field House at 7:00. It was so amazing seeing all of the students and the community cheer on the team. I will never forget that night because the kids loved it so much!.
