James "Jim" Harrold
After spending 26 years as an officer in the United States Air Force, James "Jim" Harrold decided to retire - sort of.
The Omaha native had earned a degree in logistics management through the air force and he traveled the world. The military gave him opportunities to travel to countries such as Pakistan and Iraq, and live in place as diverse as South Korea, Germany, the Azores Islands and Anchorage, Alaska.
Still, when Jim decided he wanted to grow roots somewhere permanent and begin a second career in Public Administration, he could pick anywhere in the world. He chose Omaha, and the University of Nebraska at Omaha was the perfect place to chase his higher-education goals.
When Nate Hunt began working as a barista at the Criss Library cafe at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, he was looking for his next move after returning from a tour of duty in Iraq in the army to wrap up an undergraduate degree in physics.
He had no idea he would get to stay at UNO, receive a full-time scholarship and get paid an additional stipend to work in one of the best internationally regarded biomechanics programs in the world.
How did this opportunity arise? All over a cup of coffee.
Take Flight in Award-Winning Programs
In 2012, UNO's Aviation Institute was named the top in the nation and received the prestigious Loening Trophy. The Loening Trophy was first awarded in 1929 and named after Grover Loening, aviation pioneer and the first aeronautical engineer for the Wright Brothers. The award rewards excellence in not just aeronautical skills, but academics, community involvement, comprehensive safety, professionalism and pro-active involvement in determining the future of aviation. The judges for the first award included Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart and Navy Commander John Towers.
The UNO Aviation Institute and School of Public Administration have combined forces to offer a graduate degree program in aviation administration. Students interested in careers in airport management, aviation policy and regulation, and other aspects of aviation should consider the opportunities for advanced training through UNO's fully accredited Master of Public Administration (MPA) program.
