Superintendent Dan Bridges recognized Mission Makers Naperville North High School students, Jack and Nick Boettcher for being community contributors.  As part of a Kennedy Jr. High School class project a year ago, Nick Boettcher decided to use his talents to make an impact on "the world" around him.
