NRHEG Community Education is offering a bus trip to the Old Log Theater’s production of “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” Friday, March 27.

“Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” is set in the colorful world of the French Riviera where casino culture is widespread. When an American rival, Freddy, arrives on the French coast, he challenges the status quo and Lawrence’s position as chief con-artist is threatened. They decide the town just isn’t big enough for the two of them and challenge each other to a bet; the first one to swindle $50,000 wins. As they both take on the bet, they fall for the same woman, but quickly realize that they may have bitten off more than they can chew.

“Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” has been described as stylish, irreverent, and "a little bit of Broadway musical comedy heaven."

Call 417-2667 to register for this trip.

Jessica Nafe is no stranger when it comes to excelling in the classroom and in extracurricular activities.

So it’s no surprise she is NRHEG’s nominee for the Minnesota State High School League’s ExCEL Award. Jessica is the daughter of Terry and Karen Nafe of Waseca.

ExCEL – Excellence in Community, Education and Leadership – is a unique recognition designed exclusively for Minnesota high school juniors who are active in school activities, who show leadership qualities, and who volunteer in their communities.

Nominees must be a junior in high school, make satisfactory progress toward graduation, participate in a MSHSL fine arts and/or athletic activity, hold leadership position(s) in their school, and work voluntarily in their community. This is the 19th year the MSHSL has sponsored the ExCEL Award.
