The coffee, hosted jointly by Milliken and Sen. Greg Adams of York, chairman of the Legislature’s Education Committee, is from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. in the Shir-Ra Room at Chances “R” Restaurant & Lounge, 124 W. 5th St. A complimentary light breakfast will be provided. The event will provide an opportunity for members of the community to have a dialogue with Milliken and Adams about issues facing the university and education in Nebraska.
The all-school assembly at York High School, 1005 Duke Dr., will begin at 9:30 a.m. Milliken will speak to students about the importance of a college education and will discuss some of the financial aid opportunities available to them, such as Collegebound Nebraska, the university’s financial aid program that provides free tuition to Nebraska students who meet NU’s admission requirements and who qualify for a federal Pell Grant.
Milliken will be joined at the assembly by Bekah Miller, a 2010 York High graduate and current University of Nebraska-Lincoln freshman who receives Collegebound Nebraska support. Miller also receives financial support from the Susan T. Buffett Foundation, which provides scholarships to students at Nebraska public colleges and universities.
