TeamMates Graduation Celebration 2024

On April 26, 2024, “Congratulations” and “Well done!” could be heard at the UNL Willa Cather Dining Complex’s Red Cloud Room. 

Mentees and their mentors, school facilitators, and families gathered to celebrate and hear well-wishes from their principals, Coach Tom Osborne, and LPS Superintendent, Dr. Paul Gausman. Nearly 70 graduating mentees were honored and given a commemorative medal and certificate of accomplishment. 34 of those graduates were also honored with a scholarship sponsored by community partners.

Three soon-to-be grads shared some special words about their time in TeamMates. Victoria, Emmett, and Riya spoke about the impact their mentor has had in their lives and their hopes for the future.

Nearly 100 graduating mentees will be honored later this May at the LPS graduation ceremonies.
