Memories of a lifetime were made for NRHEG students who traveled to Costa Rica. There were six adults and 42 students who traveled to the beautiful country located in Central America between Nicaragua and Panama. It is home to many different plants and animals and is known for its variety of ecosystems.  

The group spent nine days touring various parts of the country. Each day was packed with activities that provided adventure, education and personal growth. During every moment of the trip students were surrounded by the energy and cultural richness of Costa Rica.

Sometimes, you have to wonder when Robin Eder gets the time to breathe

Teachers matter. Good teachers make a difference. Exceptional teachers impact lives for years after graduation.

NRHEG has been fortunate to have one of those exceptional teachers for over two decades in Robin Eder. Eder has taught middle school and high school special education, and this past year she shifted to the newly-created Student Success Coordinator position in the secondary school.

Initially thinking that she wanted to be a math teacher when she started at St. Cloud State University, Eder soon shifted to special education. She hearkened back to some experiences helping on the playground in elementary school with special needs students. That had stuck with her over the years and helped her make the decision that she wanted to work with those students all the time.

Comments invited on LeSueur River water restoration PDF Print E-mail

Mankato, Minn. — The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) invites comments on two reports outlining strategies to restore the LeSueur River and other waters in its drainage area, also called a watershed. The reports are open for comment through April 29.

This watershed is one of the most polluted watersheds in Minnesota, according to data collected statewide. Impairments — waters that fail to meet standards — are common throughout the watershed.

The Le Sueur watershed covers 711,000 acres in South Central Minnesota. It drains parts of Blue Earth, Faribault, Freeborn, Steele and Waseca counties. This river meets the Blue Earth River near Mankato, where drinking water wells extract water from below the Blue Earth River.

“Flying is going to be a bit difficult,” admits Will Rudau, who plays Grandpa Joe in the upcoming NRHEG performance of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. “But I think the audience is really going to enjoy it,” adds Nicole Wallin, who has been cast in the role of Charlie.

The cast and crew of the play have been as busy as Oompa-Loompas, especially over the last couple weeks as the three performances have been coming nearer. The play will be presented Friday, April 17 at 7:30 p.m., and at 2:30 and 7:30 on Saturday. With 20 different sets and even more musical numbers, the production promises to be an extravaganza of color, sound, and—to the absolute delight of everyone involved—surprises.

“There’s something here for children and adults,” says cast member Nicole Edon. Jessica Nafe agrees: “This is very much a family show,” she says. “There’s more humor in it than I realized, and while some of it is aimed at children, some of it is definitely more for adults.”
