Olympic gold medalist to speak for Union’s Leadership Symposium

As a Cornhusker linebacker, Nebraska native Curt Tomasevicz faced barreling lineman nearly twice his size. But that’s nothing compared to hurtling down the side of a cliff at 90 mph with nothing to protect you but a tin can. “Bobsledding is kind of scary,” he said. “When you look over that cliff, you can’t see more than 50 meters in front of you.”

Iraq memorial service aims to begin healing, reconciliation

“We received nonstop phone calls begging us for help,” said Laila Khoudeida, a Lincoln woman whose Yazidi family immigrated to the U.S. when she was 12. “I cannot sit around and do nothing about what they are telling me.”

The Yazidi are a group of Kurdish-speaking people who live largely in northern Iraq. In early August, President Obama drew attention to the slaughter and persecution of Yazidis by ISIL in Iraq when he authorized food drops and air strikes to help save a UN estimated 40,000 people trapped on Mount Sinjar.

My Project Impact

It was cold. Really cold. So cold that when I rinsed my hands after eating my donut, they tingled under the water. But I didn’t even question why I was outside at 7:30 on a Thursday instead of snuggled comfortably in my bed. The day is all about serving others. Project Impact would not be put off by a bit of chilly weather.
