On Tuesday, November 14th, 32 8th-grade students from Wakefield Community Schools went on a visit to Northeast Community College. For many of them, this was their first experience visiting a college campus. The Wakefield School Counseling Department organized this visit as an effort to encourage students at a young age to begin thinking about their post-secondary education/plans. The 8th graders arrived on campus and began the day with a fun activity to determine which careers may be a good fit for them based on their skills and interests. The inventory focused on the following areas: nature smart, logic smart, body smart, people smart, creative smart, and industrial smart. The NECC recruiters incorporated fun minute-to-win-it activities related to these skills which engaged the students. After the skills and interest inventory and activities, the students were broken into groups and toured the campus. Students had the opportunity to check out the dorms, the student center, and various lecture halls and labs. After the tour, the students attended a college student panel in which they were able to ask the college students questions about college in general and questions specific to NECC. Finally, the students ate a delicious lunch at NECC's cafeteria. It was an educational day that got the students fired up for their future.

The 2023 Youth Salute presented by the Greater Omaha Council Bluffs Area Council on Youth Leadership recently announced an incredible local nomination. Ashlyn Boeckenhauer, a senior at Wakefield Community Schools, was selected as one of 207 high school youth leaders from 88 schools in the metro area. She was represented at this year's Youth Salute Awards Virtual Ceremony hosted by 2023 Host University Sponsor, Nebraska Wesleyan University. A "Top Youth Leader" was named from each high school. Participating Universities/Colleges provided the opportunity for students to be awarded up to $1,673,000.00 in scholarships and other awards. This year, Bellevue University, Nebraska Wesleyan University, Clarkson College, University of Nebraska- Lincoln, University of Nebraska- Omaha and Simpson College provided scholarships. The Greater Omaha Council Bluffs Area Council on Youth Leadership was formed in 2018 to conduct the "Youth Salute" in nearby communities in cooperation with the National Council on Youth Leadership, a non-profit organization. Teachers, guidance counselors and principals nominate students to apply to attend the Youth Salute event. In order to qualify, the student had to be a junior (senior class of 2024), have a 3.0 GPA or greater and have held at least two leadership roles to which they were chosen by their peers or an adult leader within the past two years in high school, religious or community sponsored organizations. Arnold Clark Photography in Omaha photographed each student nominated. Each student is featured on a banner which is displayed at their high school. Ashlyn Boeckenhauer was offered a $4,000/year scholarship to Bellevue University totaling $16,000 over the course of 4 years. Wakefield Community Schools is very proud to have senior Ashlyn Boeckenhauer representing as a "Top Youth Leader." Congratulations to Ashlyn!
