Helena student, Bella Nyman, receives national recognition

Bella Nyman recently earned one of just ten national recognitions as a 2020 Children’s Miracle Network Champion Child.  In this position, Miss. Nyman hopes to advocate for more mental health resources in the rural areas of Montana.

At a ceremony in the Governor’s Reception Room, surrounded by her family, friends, fellow students, school administrators, members of the media, and representatives of Shodair and Montana’s Children’s Miracle Network, Miss Nyman received recognition for her award from the Governor, who thanked her for bringing her strength and courage to the national level.

Miss Nyman is a student at the Project for Alternative Learning, of which she said she would have been a dropout without.  She also advised anyone suffering with mental health to talk to someone and know that better days are coming.

Thank you to Miss Nyman for speaking up and advocating for the need for mental health resources across the state and the nation.  We’re so proud to call you one of our students!
