The Board of Regents is pleased to present a Kudos award to Jeanne
Holdren, assistant corporation secretary for the University of Nebraska.
Jeanne assists the Board of Regents in innumerable ways. She is
responsible for preparing the final edition of the Board agenda for each
meeting, a task which requires huge attention to detail and careful
coordination with colleagues in Varner Hall and on each campus of the
University. Time and time again we succeed in producing an agenda
that is close to perfection. Most of the credit for this rests with Jeanne.

Jeanne has proven to be the inveterate professional. She is dedicated
to assuring that the Board and staff of Varner Hall are fully aware of the
needs of the Board, the President and others as the agenda is prepared
for a meeting. In addition, Jeanne’s demeanor is always cheerful, very
helpful and positive.
Jeanne also has primary responsibility for assuring that the Board has
accommodation when they travel to meetings in Lincoln, Omaha or
Kearney. She has helped to negotiate rates with hotels that have
resulted in improved rooms and associated services together with
considerable savings for the University.
As the Board has moved to a less paper‐intensive environment, Jeanne
has spearheaded the methods that provide the Board electronic access
to records and other information such as presentations made at
meetings. The availability of such information for the Board and its
committees has also made the orientation of new regents simpler and
Today Jeanne is accompanied by her husband Ron Holdren, her mother
Marie Davidson and her friends and co‐workers, Verda Schweitzer,
Cathy Robertus and Alicia Hausmann.
Please join me in thanking Jeanne for her work and dedication to the
University of Nebraska.
