Mondays and Thursdays.
Bickert said she thought the
partnership between UNL students
and the Goodrich students would
benefit both sides.
“The college students will be
able to serve as role models to the
students, and the experience will
help those who are interested in
going into education,” she said.
For the younger students,
Bickert said, they will meet other
people outside of their peer groups
and will be involved in a college
setting early in their lives.
“We hope that if we can expose
them to higher education it might
influence them to go to college,”
she said. “The sooner we can get
students involved and help them,
the better chance they have of
being successful.”
In addition to tutoring, Ray said
I think its a really
great opportunity for
