Nebraska Capitol Forum on America’s Future allows high school classes to study U.S. foreign policy issues. As part of the program, more than 100 students attended a daylong event at the State Capitol to consider the subject. The students attending the event were there as class representatives. Capitol Forum is sponsored by the Nebraska Humanities Council and Secretary Gale. Pictured is Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy addressing the students in the Warner Chamber.
Among those participating in the event were (from left) Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy, Secretary Gale, Capitol Forum lead teacher Dennis Fornander of North Platte and Chris Sommerich of the Nebraska Humanities Council.
