If high school secretaries could fly, NRHEG’s newly hired one would.
That’s just how dedicated and driven Teri Kormann is.
“As Mr. Cyr’s secretary, I enter lunch payments and student data, make changes in data if the phone number and or addresses have changed,” Kormann said. “I also update e-mail addresses, update attendance daily, look up student schedules and interact with students.”
All of these daily tasks keep her busy from 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. from Monday through Friday.
“Every day is different,” she said. “The time at school flies by. I love it.”

The NRHEG High School Band has been very successful in recent years, shown not only by their excellent performances, but also by awards they’ve received. The band has won the Waseca Marching Classic the last three years in a row, and six out of the last seven years.
Two years ago, they didn’t win first place, but they did win the People’s Choice award, which some could argue is even better.
“This summer was very successful for our marching band,” said Tim Siewert, band director. “We had a whole new look with great uniforms and drums we were able to purchase, but our reputation stayed at the high level it’s always been at.”
