A Year in Seward

Since August 2018, Baki Terzic of Zurich, Switzerland has been living with Rotarians Brady and Jill Johnson and their family as a foreign exchange student. She will share her reflections and reactions to her experiences, studies at Seward High School, and time in our community. We'll also be joined by Baki's parents for what promises to be a program that causes us to see our community from a different perspective.

Concordia's New Construction Project

In April, Concordia University broke ground on the Dunklau Center for Science, Math and Business, an 86,000 square foot academic facility that will house the university's natural science, business, math, and computer science programs. Dr. Rob Hermann, Chair of the Natural Sciences Department and faculty liaison for the facility design process, will provide an overview on these programs at the university and the new facility being constructed to house them. This will be an exciting and informative program, no hardhats required.

Expanding Access to the Justice System

According to American Bar Association research, 85% of the public's legal needs go unmet. There are many factors for this, including income and location - did you know that 12 of Nebraska's 93 counties have no attorneys? The Nebraska State Bar Association is attempting to expand access to Nebraska's justice system through a variety of initiatives, including its Volunteer Lawyers Project and Rural Practice Initiative. Liz Neeley, Executive Director of the NSBA and a Sewardite, will discuss this important need and the efforts underway to ensure "equality before the law" for Nebraskans.
