What a fabulous evening we had! Thank you to all who supported this important and fun event! We are tabulating results and will post details and pictures soon!
Thank you to our Gala Business Sponsor, Hale Retail Group, a full-service provider of commercial real estate services. Sam Hale, President and founding principal, was instrumental in the development of the upscale townhome community across the street from NSCHS, significantly enhancing the school's surroundings.
Sam has many personal connections to NSCHS. While his children attended North Springs, Sam served as PTA President and met another involved parent, Sue Smith. They married and together raised 4 North Springs' graduates. Sam and his 2 brothers are also NSHS alumni! Sam graduated from North Springs in 1969 and received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Real Estate from the University of Georgia.
Many thanks to the Hale family for their longstanding and generous support for North Springs Charter High School!

To commemorate the school's 50th anniversary, FONS has established a campaign to reach all 50 classes with the objective to raise $1,000 per class for a total of $50,000 (50/50). Please contact us if you have alumni ties or would like to help with this worthwhile campaign. How do your donations help NSCHS...?
