nbss shirts

Every year the students of North Bennet Street School's Bookbinding department give our teachers a gift of appreciation for putting up with us. This year, we have designed a t-shirt using the illustrated notes of first-year student Yi Bin Liang. All profits from the from the sale of each shirt ($5 per shirt) are being donated to North Bennet Street's scholarship program in honor of Jeff Altepeter and Martha Kearsley.

To donate directly to the bookbinding scholarship fund, please visit the school's website here. We thank you for your support!
