Skilled workers make civilized life possible!

Each year, we look for the next generation of aspiring workers who will work smart and hard.  The Work Ethic Scholarship Program doesn’t focus on test scores, grades, or grammar.  It’s about the people who share our values and understand the importance of work ethic, personal responsibility, delayed gratification, and a positive attitude.

In 2019 Nine NEBRASKA Seniors,  in 2020 Five NEBRASKA Seniors and in 2021 One NEBRASKA Senior were awarded with the Mike Rowe Works Foundation Scholarship!
