Brass addressed the National Honors Society at Conifer High School. It was a very well attended event and an honor for Brass.

Ms. Elizabeth Milligan was the sponsoring teacher and The Mizel Museum sponsored the event. Brass was seated next to Principal  Musiak and Asst. Principal Shapiro. David Zauder, Brass' father, was in attendance and was met by many adoring students who have heard his story of survival and success through his daughter's teachings about being a Standupster. It truly was a joyous celebration, especially for those who graduated with honors through the National Honors Society.
