UNO Students Honored for Nonprofit Studies
Omaha - American Humanics Inc. honored two University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) students as Next Generation Leaders. Only 33 American Humanics students from across America received the award, which includes scholarship money.
Hanna Wanzenried and Beth Riley each received a $4,500 scholarship to help cover living and educational expenses while completing nonprofit internships in the metro area.
Wanzenried earned a bachelor’s degree in religion and history from UNO in May. She currently interns at Project Interfaith in Omaha. Project Interfaith, an affiliate of the Anti-Defamation League, works with religious groups, educators and the community to promote a better understanding of religious diversity.
Riley, a UNO senior, interned at Child Saving Institute this past spring. Much of her time was spent assisting Child Saving Institute staff members with special events, such as fund-raisers and capital campaigns. Child Saving Institute provides support to children and their families who are in crisis. The organization also strives to prevent and treat child abuse and neglect.
