IMPORTANT NOTICE: We have had a few issues in the past with not receiving electronic registrations that were sent for the Graduate Recognition. We have a completely new website, and we are fairly confident that this should no longer be a problem. We want to make sure, however, that there are no registrations that get lost. For this reason, we would like to have both an electronic submission and a hard copy submission from each graduate.
We are asking you to either:
- fill out and submit the electronic Graduate Questionnaire at the bottom of this page, and also go to the linked PDF questionnaire, print and fill it out, then mail it to NCHEA, 2610 Winchester South, Lincoln, NE 68512; OR
- click on the linked Word questionnaire, save on your computer as prompted, fill it out and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, then also print it and mail the hard copy to NCHEA, 2610 Winchester South, Lincoln, NE.
We know this is an extra burden, but we want to make sure all graduates are listed in our program and are able to participate in the recognition. If, for any reason, you are unable to send us an electronic registration, then please mail us a hard copy. Thank you for your cooperation.
Dear 2015 Graduate:
The Nebraska Christian Home Educators Association (NCHEA) 2015 Graduate Recognition (Recognition) will be held Friday, April 10, 2015, during the evening program of the NCHEA Conference & Curriculum Fair (C&CF). The C&CF is held at Indian Hills Community Church, 1000 So. 84th Street, Lincoln, Nebraska.

If you are planning to attend/participate in the Recognition, please complete and return the graduate questionnaire ASAP. See notice above concerning how to submit this information.
The parents’ C&CF pre-registration and this questionnaire must be received by March 15, 2015, due to printer deadlines, etc.

Graduate Recognition Appearance Standards
The Recognition and the participating graduates are representatives of home education. In keeping with this formal occasion, the NCHEA requests no immodest dress (Romans 12:1; 1 Corinthians 8:9).
You must agree to abide by the NCHEA appearance standards in order to participate in the Graduate Recognition. If you do not follow the guidelines, you will not be able to participate in the Graduate Recognition.
*Guidelines for Graduate Recognition Dress Code *
Timothy 4:12 – “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.”
Our goal in setting forth these guidelines is to provide Christian guidance as we all strive to be good stewards in regard to our personal Christian testimony and that of the NCHEA. The goal of the NCHEA Graduate Recognition is to bring honor to God for the work that He has done in the lives of home educating families. We request that the dress of the graduates reflect Christian modesty and that it does not distract or detract from this important occasion (Romans 12:1; 1 Corinthians 8:9). Please follow the guidelines below when selecting your attire. If you have any questions, please contact Kathleen Lenzen at 402-423-4297.
Young men should follow the specific minimum standards of I Timothy 2:9.
The general fit/fabric of the outfit needs to conform to modest Christian standards. Young men should wear a collared dress shirt and dress pants with a belt. A jacket and tie is appropriate, but not required. Undergarments should NOT be visible.
Young women should follow the specific minimum standards of Proverbs 31:10 and I Timothy 2:9.
The general fit/fabric of the outfit needs to conform to modest Christian standards. Dresses and skirts should be at least knee length, shoulders should be covered with no strapless or spaghetti strap tops, no plunging necklines with cleavage revealed, no deep plunging backlines with more than half the back exposed, no bare midriffs, undergarments should NOT be visible, and clothing should NOT be transparent.

Graduates participating in the Recognition may invite guests in addition to immediate family members to attend the Recognition. Guests will be admitted after 6:30 PM when the Curriculum Fair closes. Non-paying guests will not receive a C&CF program/syllabus.
