July 21, 2021
Three college students from different parts of Nebraska are spending the summer in the Chadron area of northwest Nebraska, learning while helping strengthen the community through the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Rural Fellows internship program.
The Rural Fellows are helping bolster tourism efforts and mental health services for K-12 students.
The students, Jacy Hafer, Hanna Jemison and Chantelle Schulz, are working with several local organizations while under the coordination and mentorship of Jenny Nixon, Rural Prosperity Educator with Nebraska Extension in the northern Panhandle.
