Friday, April 27th was a signature day for the Lincoln TeamMates graduating seniors. The graduating seniors were recognized for their academic achievement and 20 of the TeamMates seniors were awarded scholarships to help them continue with their dream of post-secondary education.
Celebrating the work of TeamMates, their families and mentors
This Spring Celebration event culminates the many years of hard work for the TeamMates seniors, their families and mentors. Many of the TeamMates mentors have been with these graduating seniors through high school and it is very rewarding for them, along with the students and their families, to see their TeamMate student graduate.
An important part of the program featured the awarding of 20 TeamMates scholarships from local donors in the Lincoln community. Without the scholarship assistance, some of the students would not be able to continue with their plan for post-secondary education.
Leadership Resources was proud to sponsor the Future Leaders Scholarship for $500. The recipient of this scholarship was Itzayana attending Lincoln Northeast High School. Itzayana plans on starting in the UNL pre-health program this summer, with the goal of becoming an oncologist.
Following the program, all TeamMates students and mentors were invited to participate in an informational session provided by the UNL Admissions Staff, followed by a campus tour and lunch in Selleck Hall. Lunch was provided for all students and mentors courtesy of TeamMates and UNL.
The TeamMates mission is to positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential through mentoring. Since the program began in 1991, it has grown with the support of Dr. Tom and Nancy Osborne to serve more than 4,000 students in 114 communities across Nebraska, Iowa and California.
