Congratulations to our honorees!


Diana Davis Spencer and Kevin Plank

On April 24, 2014, NFTE DC joined with NFTE’s entire global family to host the annual international gala. It was an extraordinary evening that celebrated not only NFTE DC’s 20th Anniversary, but also the accomplishments of our students and teachers from around the world. One thousand of our biggest champions were on-hand at the National Building Museum to support NFTE students and honor both Diana Davis Spencer and Kevin Plank. Thank you to all participants and attendees for making this event a resounding success!
