Devastating News: We lost a special parent on January 6 - Theresa Howell - in a fatal car accident. Her two daughters that attend NHCA received minor injuries and were released after a few days in the hospital. Services for Theresa were conducted in Springfield on January 11.

Our prays and thoughts continue to be poured out to this wonderful family.
