Attorneys offer service to Parent-Child Center

Project restores yard, play area.

A service project at the Parent-Child Center in Lexington this month not only provided the center with a refurbished yard and play area but it also offered some young attorneys an opportunity to build leadership skills.

Members of the Nebraska State Bar Association 2009-2010 Leadership Academy recently spent a day rehabilitating the yard, fence and swing set for the Parent-Child Center.


Swing set and fence materials were donated by Hicken Lumber and Home Center Inc. along with a sandbox and picnic table. Sod was donated by the Gothenburg FFA chapter.


Leadership Academy members who assisted with the project include: Linsey Bryant of Fremont, Michael Cameron of Lincoln, Tag Herbek of Omaha, Lisa Jorgenson of Gothenburg, James Korth of Ogallala, Kendra Ringenberg of Omaha, John Sharp of Omaha, Tara Stingley of Omaha and Mathew Watson of Lincoln.

The leadership academy exists to develop the leadership skills of participants to allow them to make greater contributions to the legal profession and their community.

NSBA members who will be in their third to 15th year of practice can apply and are selected to ensure diversity in geography, practice type, employment setting, gender and ethnicity.

The goals of the organization are to nurture effective leadership with respect to ethical, professional and community service issues; to build relationships among legal leaders from across the state and from across disciplines within the profession; to raise the level of awareness among lawyers regarding the broad range of issues facing the legal profession; and to enhance the diversity of leaders within the legal profession and the community as a whole.
