Each year the NAEHS induction ceremony recognizes outstanding students who have decided to return to school or pursue an education despite the many adversities they face. Members come from all around the world and from diverse backgrounds, but they all share one thing in common-- a desire to continue their education and reach for their dream!

Joining the new inductees at the ceremony were family members, Rio Salado staff and representatives from the Arizona Department of Education, Adult Education Services.

Here’s to the Rio Salado NAEHS Class of 2019!
