She holds a master’s degree in secondary education and has impressively served as the NHD Central Regional Coordinator for the past two years. Stephanie’s commitment to NHD is so deep, she often jokes that she ‘bleeds NHD!’. Her passion for the program is evident, and she is eagerly looking forward to assisting every student in New Mexico the opportunity to participate in NHD.

As Stephanie Wilson joins us in her role as NHD Contest Coordinator, we extend our deep gratitude to Heather McClenahan for her significant contributions during her time as the NHD Contest Coordinator.

And we are thrilled that she will remain a part of the NHD program in her new advisory role, where her invaluable experience and support will continue to guide the program’s ongoing development.
