A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Reggie is a student at the University of Nebraska at Omaha majoring in social work, driven by a calling to help others avoid the difficulties he has experienced.
Reggie grew up in Arkansas in a single-parent home with his three siblings. “I was academically illiterate. I was starting to be influenced by surroundings. They were not positive influences.”
Reggie came to Omaha in 2007 to live with his father. However, life put more roadblocks in his way. “I was at risk of being homeless in 2010 after graduating from high school. My father was incarcerated for a short period of time and I was living at his residence. I had to leave because I just couldn’t afford it.”
Reggie eventually graduated from Metropolitan Community College in 2015 and realized he was destined to serve.
Reggie didn’t know how he was going to pay for classes, but he was determined to attend UNO, which has one of the top social work programs in the nation. Thanks to donors, UNO was able to offer Reggie a scholarship to cover much of his tuition through his expected graduation in 2021. “I am so grateful for the opportunity to receive this scholarship. They saw the potential in me and saw I’m someone worth funding, because I’m determined to make a difference in people’s lives for the better.”
