“It was a pleasure to spend time at Saddlebrook Elementary where I visited with students who are studying Nebraska’s history, read a story to a wonderful group of kindergartners, and heard from the school’s dedicated teaching staff. These children represent our state’s future, and it is so important that we provide them with the knowledge to succeed.”
