Continuing our Nebraska feature this week, here's another highlight from the Cornhusker State!

Read below for a submission from Kathy Urbanek of Mitchell, NE (Mitchell Public Schools). You can share yours here: http://buff.ly/3d7hWUe | Nebraska Rural Community Schools Association

"Here are two of our students at Mitchell sewing masks for our essential workers at school. Jessica Splichal is a junior and her brother, Jonah, is in 7th grade. We needed masks for our cafeteria staff and paras that have been putting together meals everyday for our students, and Jessica stepped up to help!"
