Senior Appointed to Gallery of Stars
Jerardo Castillo, a senior at Banner County High school, traveled with school counselor Chris Cooper to Columbus, Nebraska to participate in the 2018 Nebraska Hispanic/Latino Summit. The Summit is sponsored by the Nebraska Department of Education for the purpose of recognizing and building leadership among Nebraska's youth. At the Summit, Jerardo was featured by the NDE as a Gallery of the Stars recipient, selected from nominees across the state based on leadership, character, involvement, and a commitment to investing in a positive future. Jerardo currently plans to attend the University of Nebraska at Kearney following his graduation from BCHS where he intends to major in art education, investing not only in his future but the futures of other young Nebraskans.
