OMAHA, Neb. (May 10, 2018) – Nebraska Children’s Home Society (NCHS) will celebrate its 125th anniversary on Saturday, June 9 at 5:30 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Conference Center, 12520 Westport Parkway in La Vista, Nebraska.
The event, “Children First for 125 Years,” celebrates a quasquicentennial of services to the children and families of Nebraska. During the celebratory event, awards will be presented to individuals supporting the NCHS mission “to provide safe and loving to children of all ages.”
The event’s keynote speaker, Josh Shipp, will present the “The Power of ONE Caring Adult.” Shipp knows, all too well, the difference one person can make in the life of a child. He experienced a challenging childhood, bouncing from one foster home to the next, until a handful of caring adults reached out to him.
Today, Shipp is a best-selling author, global youth empowerment expert and acclaimed speaker. His documentary TV series, “Teen Trouble,” on A&E, followed his groundbreaking work with teens. He is the author of the national bestseller “The Teen’s Guide to World Domination,“ and was listed on Inc. Magazine’s 30 under 30 list. Shipp has been featured on Good Morning America, OPRAH, Anderson Cooper, MTV and Comedy Central.
Julie Cornell, news anchor for KETV, will serve as master of ceremonies for the event. Honorary chairs are Randy and Darlene Mueller.
