"This weekend gave all NC Presidents an amazing opportunity to connect, share insights, and find solutions to common problems. It was an inspiring weekend that has resulted in a lot of practical lessons and tools to be used for EYP NL."
On this day, it is important to remember that EYP was in fact started by a teacher in 1987 as a school project. Ever since, teachers have been vital to the EYP and we would not exist without you.
