Green presented the certificates to more than 45 Nebraska College Preparatory Academy seniors at Omaha South and Omaha North high schools. The academy is an innovative program that prepares academically talented, first-generation, income-eligible students for college and future careers. Scholars who complete academy requirements gain access to a support network of community peers, academic support and personal development opportunities throughout college.
The Nebraska College Preparatory Academy scholars also receive full financial assistance to pay college costs, including tuition, books, room and board, and fees.
