Holy Name third graders spent the day in Lincoln recently. They had front row seats to the signing of the Nebraska School Choice Week Proclamation. After the signing and pictures with the Governor, they had a personal tour of the Capitol and even got to sit at Governor Pete Ricketts' desk. It was a wonderful experience for our students.
