"Through it all I have always been impressed with how the NATS leadership has also been so highly recognized as great teachers. Did being a great teacher lead them to NATS or was NATS responsible for them being great teachers? In my case, it was the latter! ... NATS grows good, young teachers and gives them a place to polish their craft."

Bob Feurer, Past President 1997-1998
