Spring Celebration

The annual Spring Celebration provides an opportunity for mentors, family members, and scholarship donors to celebrate graduating senior mentees’ hard work and achievements.


TeamMates Spring Celebration 2023

On April 27, 2023, Lincoln TeamMates held the annual Spring Celebration for the graduating class of 2023 at UNL’s Willa Cather Dining Complex, 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. Over 100 seniors were honored and given a commemorative medal and certificate of accomplishment. 35 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. Worood, William, and Heaven shared their words of wisdom for the graduating class, but also showcased the growth they have experienced in partnership with their caring mentors.
