Salem Community Patriot | April 6, 2012 - 3 Salem High School Receives National Student Council Award
submitted by Salem High School For its exemplary record of leadership, service, and activities that serve to improve the school and community, Salem High School has been awarded a 2012 National Gold Council of Excellence Award by the National Association of Student Councils (NASC). Nearly 180 high school councils were named National Councils of Excellence. Of those, Salem High School is one of only 163 high school councils nationwide to receive the highly-esteemed honor of being named a National Gold Council of Excellence. To meet the requirement for the National Council of Excellence Award, a student council must demonstrate that it meets a variety of criteria. Those councils named to the Gold Level have successfully met a greater number of the criterion. In addition to basic requirements such as a written constitution, regular meetings, a democratic election process, and membership in NASC, schools that qualify for the award demonstrate such things as leadership training for council members, teacher/staff appreciation activities, student recognition programs, school and community service projects, spirit activities, goal setting, financial planning, and active participation in their state and national student council organizations. “Receiving an NASC National Gold Council of Excellence Award indicates a dedication on the part of the local school to providing a strong,
already recognizes the value of our hard-working Student Council, and to have the NASC continue to acknowledge them through this award is an even greater validation of that hard work. It is quite an honor for which the students should be proud.”

New Hampshire Exports Holding Strong
submitted by Department of Resources and Economic Development
Exports of New Hampshire products fared well in 2011, totaling nearly $4.3 billion despite challenging economic conditions in some parts of the globe, according to a report from the state’s Office of International Commerce (OIC). The 2011 statistics show that exports were
down 1.69 percent from a year ago, but, said Tina Kasim, program manager for the OIC at the Department of Resources and Economic Development, 2010 was a record year for New Hampshire companies that sell their products overseas.
“Considering tough economic situations in
many parts of the world, we were anticipating a dip in the 2011 numbers,” she said. “The good news is that New Hampshire companies are doing well with their exports and the drop was less than we anticipated.”
New Hampshire goods sent overseas in 2011 totaled $4,293,384,673. In 2010, the record year, exports totaled $4,367,331,611, which was up more than 42 percent in 2009. Last year, New Hampshire’s largest trading partner was Mexico, where over $943 million worth of goods was sent. Canada was second, with over $648 million shipped and China was third, with $338 million shipped. Rounding out the top 10 countries were Germany, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, Japan and France. In the first month of 2012, Kasim said, Canada

machinery, for sound and television equipment; medical devices; plastics and vehicle parts. Aerospace and aircraft parts are ninth. To further help promote the state’s aerospace
technologies, the OIC has secured a joint “Best of New England” booth with Maine and Vermont for the Farnborough Air Show in England this July, which is the world’s largest exhibition of aerospace, defense, space and security technologies. There is space available for New Hampshire businesses that deal with this sector. Trade missions are made
available through the Small Business Administration’s State Export and Trade Promotion grant. Two other trade missions are planned this year; to the Montreal Aerospace Cluster in September and an effort is underway to coordinate a mission to China later this year. New Hampshire companies interested in participating in the trade missions should call Kasim at 271-8444.
