Kearney area students at the 5th Grade Leadership day sponsored by UNKCollege of Education and Kearney Public Schools, in partnership with the surrounding school districts, sponsored the 5th Grade Leadership Conference on Friday, October 28th. Approximately 210 5th graders and their teachers/administrators were on the UNK campus enjoying mini-classes led by faculty from all 4 Colleges. Thank you to the wonderful faculty! They also had the privilege of listening to DeMoine Adams, their Keynote Speaker, who is a past Nebraska football star and motivational speaker who talked about building positive relationships.

All of the 5th graders were specifically selected because of their proven leadership skills in their elementary school, and we consider them future Loper leaders! A few of the activities included in Friday’s conference were Stress Reducing Exercise, Team Building, Dance-Move-Lead, Planetarium: A Walk Though the Galaxy, and Economics is for Everyone!
