Life Skills Holds Leadership and Involvement Fair

By NU Athletic Communications

Lincoln, NE – As part of the Nebraska Life Skills Department’s Four-Year Tiered Programming for total person development, sophomore student-athletes spent the evening of January 27th attending a Leadership and Involvement Fair at Memorial Stadium. The event provided all in attendance with a platform to learn more about existing opportunities within local and school-affiliated volunteer organizations.


Beginning with an informational panel, attendees spent the first half of the event listening to testimonials from student-athletes who have benefited from getting more involved on campus. This included current Huskers Sinclaire Miramontez (soccer) and Sierra Hassel (gymnastics), as well as former Husker Mattie Fowler (softball).


Following the panel, the student-athletes were led into a room filled with table displays featuring 18 volunteer organizations affiliated with either the University of Nebraska or the Lincoln community. During this time, the students were encouraged to move from table to table and learn more about the organizations in attendance, as a means to get more involved heading into their junior and senior years.


Nebraska Life Skills would like to thank the following organizations for taking the time out of their weekend to participate in the event and further educate Husker student-athletes about some of the volunteer opportunities that exist in the community:
