Posted November 5, 2018
Ryan Adkins, a junior at Westside High School, has been selected as a Chuck Hagel Public Service Scholar. This award is presented to outstanding student leaders attending Omaha area high schools who exemplify the highest standards of ethics, integrity, leadership and respect.
Adkins received his award at a symposium at the University of Nebraska Omaha on October 17. He received a certificate signed by Senator Chuck Hagel, as well as a scholarship to enroll in a dual enrollment course through the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Dual enrollment allows college bound students to get a head start by taking college-level classes at their high school.
