[00:00:09.580]We've talked about how to give students an experience
[00:00:11.830]from the moment that they enter
[00:00:13.010]to the moment that they leave at Standing Bear,
[00:00:14.850]even if they don't choose to become part of this
[00:00:18.613]but have experiences at the College of Business
[00:00:21.010]and with the University of Nebraska.
[00:00:23.600]Through hands-on immersion experiences
[00:00:25.320]in early college pathways,
[00:00:26.970]the focus program will allow
[00:00:28.090]Standing Bear High School students
[00:00:29.870]to explore their passion and career opportunities
[00:00:32.010]in the areas of marketing, management,
[00:00:34.100]accounting, finance, supply chain and economics.
[00:00:37.200]There can be no more important work
[00:00:39.720]and learning that our students do.
[00:00:41.830]These pathways are designed
[00:00:42.920]for students who wish to pursue a two
[00:00:44.360]or four year college degree,
[00:00:45.830]as well as students who will
[00:00:47.040]enter into the workforce
[00:00:48.290]right after graduating from high school.
[00:00:50.380]This is truly an exciting opportunity
[00:00:52.170]for students to connect with their peers,
[00:00:54.970]the business professionals in the community.
[00:00:57.110]And I am grateful to be
[00:00:59.290]afforded the opportunity to serve
[00:01:00.970]as Standing Bear's principal
[00:01:02.560]and begin this partnership with the University of Nebraska.
[00:01:05.170]So thank you so very much,
[00:01:06.810]The University of Nebraska and for LPS,
[00:01:08.420]for entrusting me
[00:01:09.600]in the collaboration
[00:01:10.850]to create something that's once
[00:01:12.440]in a lifetime for many of our students and staff.
