Omaha Middle School, High School and College Students Explore How Travel Changes A Person

March 12


The students filed into classrooms to listen to stories from around the world...

They heard from a man who had crossed the border into Canada on a bicycle. They heard from another who had grown up in Egypt, never fully appreciating its ancient pyramids. They heard from people who had traveled to India, Pakistan, Turkey and Japan.

And, perhaps most importantly, they learned that people in all these places are not so different from them.

This week, more than 100 students from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, Northwest High School and Beveridge Magnet School gathered at Beveridge to pick the brains of about 30 Omahans who had spent significant time abroad. Some worked in immigration, some served in the military and others were born in other countries.
