From the Desk of the CEO
We are having a great start to 2017 here at NSG. The steady growth we experienced last year is continuing, and I am happy to announce that we just made another addition to our staff – Support Engineer, Gene Hively. This past week, we had the privilege of attending and sponsoring the Middle Tennessee Association of Legal Administrators’ annual retreat for the 13th consecutive year. It is a pleasure to give back and support an association that helped make NSG the premier IT resource for the legal community across Tennessee. But the most exciting thing I have to announce is that NSG is now the Charter sponsor for 3 STEM Scouts labs in middle Tennessee.
STEM Scouts is a program that empowers elementary, middle, and high school students to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in creative and innovative ways. The STEM labs meet on a weekly basis from September to May. Each lab requires a professional lab manager and lab assistant that lead the students in hands-on activities such as: building robots, building and strengthening bridges, building solar powered cars, and DNA extraction.
NSG was a part of the initial STEM Scouts pilot program in Nashville, and is currently the Charter sponsor for 3 labs and 41 students in Hendersonville. Our investment in the STEM Scouts program goes far beyond providing lab coats, goggles, and the materials for the students and instructors in each lab session. We want to help students learn to work in a fast-paced and thought provoking environment, and have an active role in developing our future leaders.
If you would like to learn more about STEM Scouts or how your business can get involved, there is a luncheon on March 1st from 11:30 until 1:00 at the Renaissance Hotel. Butch Jones, the Head Football Coach of the Tennessee Volunteers, will be the keynote speaker. NSG will be hosting a table and can accommodate 5 more guests. If you would like to attend, please RSVP immediately. You can RSVP to Zachary Johnson at 615-577-4382 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
