Education students present wax museum of Nebraskan and other famous educators in honor of Peru State’s sesquicentennial.

Peru, Nebraska– Peru State’s freshman education students presented profiles on educators from Nebraska and beyond with wax museum presentations on Monday. This program was in honor of Peru State’s and Nebraska’s 150th anniversary celebrations.

Dr. Gina Bittner, associate professor of education, said, “These students worked so hard and really developed their public presentation skills while learning about educators made famous by their educational contributions in Nebraska and beyond over the last 150 years.”

The freshman education students are enrolled in College 101 courses with Bittner and Dr. Kelly Kingsley (also an Associate Professor of Education).

Bittner added, “We are proud of our freshmen education majors for all their work. They had to conduct research, write an essay, turn that into a 3-5 minute presentation, create a timeline of their famous educator’s life and create the ‘wax museum’ presentation for the entire campus community, ”

“It would be our hope that these beginning education majors focus their time and talents to make a lasting impact during the next 150 years in Nebraska.”
