Tanner Cline

Tanner credits his internship experience as giving him a better sense of direction for his life. It was his first glimpse into the life of the real IT world and helped him to branch out and discover the latest and greatest. Tanner acknowledges that the University of Nebraska at Kearney provided him with frequent developmental opportunities that put him in situations where he could make a difference. He credits the small class sizes and tremendous faculty for his enriching and enjoyable experience. He notes that a lot of colleges have issues with students getting lost in the crowd, but he never felt this way at UNK. In fact, he says the people he met here along the way seem irreplaceable.
