Elgin graduate Lydia Behnk is making connections.
She is part of the UNK Leadership, Education and Development Series (Leads), a program launched in 2017-18 that prepares students for their postgraduate careers by developing leadership qualities through a variety of activities, experiences and educational sessions.
Students learn from and network with campus and community leaders while actively participating in various activities and civic events.
The group, which has 15 current members, also gets involved off campus.
UNK Leads students recently attended a Kearney Public Schools Board of Education meeting and they’ll be at next week’s Nebraska Cultural Unity Conference sponsored by UNK. On Wednesday evening, they visited the new Central Nebraska Veterans Home, where members toured the facility, learned about its history and played bingo with residents living there.
