The American Heart and American Stroke Associations and Mission: Lifeline Stroke organization held a press conference today at the Cornhusker to highlight a $6.5 million commitment to enhance and expand stroke care in Nebraska. The foundation of this new initiative is a three year grant of $5.35 million from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.

Sen. Baker invites students to youth legislature
High school students are invited to take on the role of state senators at the Unicameral Youth Legislature June 10-13. At the State Capitol, student senators will sponsor bills, conduct committee hearings, debate legislation and discover the unique process of the nation’s only unicameral.
The Unicameral Youth Legislature gives behind-the-scenes access to students who have an interest in public office, government, politics, law, public policy, debate or public speaking. Students will learn about the inner workings of the Legislature directly from senators and staff.
“This is an excellent opportunity for students to experience many of the same things I see as a senator,” said Baker. “The camp helps demonstrate the importance of being involved in policy making at every level, even if you might think you have no interest in ‘politics'”.
Registrants are encouraged to apply for a Greg Adams Civic Scholarship award, which covers the full cost of admission. Applicants must submit a short essay. Other scholarships are also available.
The Office of the Clerk of the Nebraska Legislature coordinates the Unicameral Youth Legislature. The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Extension 4-H Youth Development Office coordinates housing and recreational activities as part of the Big Red Summer Camps program.
To learn more about the program, go to www.NebraskaLegislature.gov/uyl or call (402) 471-2788. The deadline for registration is May 15.
