Two of NOLS’s own will have the honor tomorrow of presenting before German Ambassador of the United States Philip Murphy, as well as about 50 ambassadors from across Europe and the heads of schools of the international schools in Berlin.

NOLS Director of Admission and Marketing Bruce Palmer and NOLS Board Secretary Jane Fried work together to promote the NOLS name and mission globally. Fried is also the assistant head for enrollment, research, and planning and dean of admissions at Phillips Academy Andover. Together, they have extensive knowledge and experience in the educational specialties of international expeditions, summer and gap-year programs, college credit and much more.

Given their expertise, Bruce and Jane were invited to present at Ambassador Murphy’s residence this week. The topic of the evening is entitled “Bridging the Secondary and University Experiences: A Gap Year and Summer Opportunities at Phillips Academy Andover and The National Outdoor Leadership School.”

Casey worked as a writer and PR specialist for NOLS.
