2018 NEF Gala Photos

The 2018 NEF Pillar Recognition and Banquet, presented by Raba Kistner, was Wednesday, Sept. 19, at The Tobin Center and honored six amazing NISD graduates, the 2018-19 Pillars of Character. The evening included meeting the Pillars over dinner, silent and live auctions, and dramatic student performances featuring the Phantom of the Opera. The gala was also a sanctioned San Antonio Tricentennial Celebration partner event.

Each year, the Pillars are selected from thousands of Northside ISD alumni who have graduated from NISD high schools since 1951. The Pillars represent the six character traits taught to NISD students that are part of the Josephson Institute’s Character Counts program. The Pillars of Character are: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.

Meet the 2018-19 Pillars of Character!
