Wood Beatrice HS Omaha UNO 1 It is unclear as to whether Thomas E. Leonard or Thomas Fisher is the name of the Science Teaching Section Chairman from Concordia High School in 1969 and 1970. The best “guess” is Thomas E. Leonard. 2 The leadership of GNATS (the Science Teaching Section) from 1979 to 1982 may be incorrect or confused in some of those years due to some co-chairs leaving and being replaced by other co-chairs, etc. The members of this Committee of the NATS Past-presidents’ Council would appreciate any input from other Past-presidents who may have information about leadership during those years. 3 In 1987 the GNATS (NATS) By-laws were changed so that the co-chair designation was replaced by a president and president-elect. From that point on, only the current president for each year is listed. 4 In 2001 the Nebraska Junior Academy of Sciences became a division of the Nebraska Academy of Sciences. July Williams became the first president of the Division at that point.
