All juniors and seniors who have attended NBS for at least two years with a minimum of 3.0 GPA are graded by the faculty in the areas of academic rigor, Christian character, leadership, behavior, and attitude.
Typically, the male and female with the highest score receives the honor of being Mr. and Miss NBS, but this year was different. There were two female students who scores identically. Because of the adjustments made to our school attendance, the students did not get a chance to break the tie and so it was decided that both females would be recognized as our Misses NBS.
These were announced at the NBS graduation ceremony on May 16. The other nominees this year included Madison Barber, Kady Brown, Abby Futch, Stephen Rainey, and Hartley Waldrop.
