Nelnet is showing its support of the Sidney Community with a donation to the Sidney Public Schools.
On Monday, Nov. 9, Nelnet Development Manager Cory Keen and his team of local employees met with the Cheyenne County School District No.1 Board of Education to present a donation to the schools. The donation included 10 3D printers along with necessary supplies. Three of the printers will go to West Elementary School, three to Sidney Middle School and four to Sidney High School. In addition to the printers and supplies, Nelnet donated $5,000 toward the District's STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program.
Nelnet has had 14 Sidney employees working from home since its job fair early this year.
Monday Keen also announced the company will be setting up an office in Sidney. The new office will be the third floor of the Security First Bank building. Nelnet plans to take possession of the building following extensive renovation of the area.
“It's going to be completely remodeled,” he said.
