A statue unveiling honoring the founding professor of real estate at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) took place Friday, May 12, at Mammel Hall.
The Rho Epsilon real estate student association and University of Nebraska Foundation hosted the event, which included a reception and scholarship dinner in addition to the unveiling.
Situated outside the north entrance of Mammel Hall, the new statue depicts Dr. C. Glenn Lewis, who founded UNO’s real estate program in 1948. Lewis led the program for more than 20 years, including developing curriculum, teaching and establishing partnerships with local real estate organizations. He retired in 1971.
The statue is made possible by a gift from Alfred G. and Beverly A. Thomsen, both UNO alumni. The sculptor is Matthew Placzek.
