Alumni from the University of Nebraska who now live in the panhandle convened last night for the annual Founders' Day Dinner.
UNL Regent Bob Phares provided alumni with a report on the state of the university, and its search for a new president.

At the day dinner, high school students who are going to attend UNL were presented scholarships, as well as hearing from a keynote speaker. "This year it's Dan Duncan and he's originally from Morrill," explains 2013 President Mark Schlothauer. "And Dan is involved with the Innovation Campus at the University where the old state fairground was."
Sandy Massey with Platte Valley Companies was presented with the 2014 alumni of the year award. She says that her years at UNL proved instrumental to getting her where she is today.
"Well it certainly helped me academically," said Massey. "As well as with the people that I got to meet who helped me in my career and helped me to prepare to have a fulfilling life here in western Nebraska."
The UNL Panhandle Alumni Chapter stays busy year round, including a summer golf tournament against local University of Wyoming alumni.
