Nebraska Athletics Hosts 6th Annual Link-N-Leaders

By NU Athletic Communications


On Sunday, April 28th, Nebraska Athletics hosted approximately 200 third through sixth graders from Lincoln Public Schools (LPS) and their parents for the sixth annual Link-N-Leaders outreach/leadership event. These LPS students were chosen by their teachers because they are “future leaders” in their classrooms. The kids participated in a variety of activities led by student-athletes from Nebraska’s three leadership groups: Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), Inner Circle, and N-volved. Each activity showcased Nebraska’s five core values of Integrity, Trust, Respect, Teamwork and Loyalty. Following the activities each student took and signed a leadership pledge. Students received cards representing the 5 values, as well as a certificate signed by Athletic Director Bill Moos and SAAC President, Anton Stephenson. In addition to the student portion, the parents went on a tour of the stadium and were able to ask questions to a panel of current student-athletes.
