Throughout the year, NHTI is host to many special events that include our students and local community. See below for our current list of special events at NHTI:

This 4-part virtual speaker series invites you to explore how mindfulness can help us address challenges that have become central to our society over the last year.

Annual Wheelchair Basketball Benefit

Wheelchair basketball BenefitThis wheelchair basketball game is held each year to raise money and awareness for the Zech DeVits Memorial Equipment Fund, providing NHTI students access to assistive technologies and equipment so they can be successful in school and be prepared for all that life has to offer. In a typical year, four NHTI teams and four community teams play for bragging rights and a good cause.

The event is organized by NHTI Athletics, Wellness, and Alumni and Development, with our partner Granite State Independent Living. Next Event: Monday, Nov. 1, 2021. Details coming soon!

The first wheelchair benefit evolved as part of an education course project in which students raised funds to help refurbish NHTI student Zech DeVits’ wheelchair-accessible van. Born with gigantism and skeletal dysplasia, Zech used a wheelchair since age 6 but never let that limit him or his dreams of helping others. With his towering 7’8” frame, Zech quickly became a beloved role model on campus. Unfortunately, he died in 2005 weeks before graduating from NHTI with an Associate Degree in Addiction Counseling.
