Phoenix Colloquium 2019 – March 26, 2019

Each spring, NLCP hosts an event called Phoenix Colloquium, the capstone of our annual Senior Project. Now in its sixth year, the event brings together students, NLCP families, staff, and community members, as well as NLCP donors and volunteers, to hear presentations and see supporting work from senior Colloquium participants. These students gave exemplary presentations at the conclusion of their senior project that are worthy of a larger audience. Colloquium is where we celebrate these senior scholars and give them the opportunity to compete for $1,000 college scholarships.

This year’s Colloquium is Tuesday, March 26, 2019, from 5-8:30 pm at our Collins Campus.
