Rob Schafer, University of Nebraska Regent

Rob Schafer spoke to our Seward Kiwanis Club this noon. He had come out directly from a UN Board of Regents meeting on which he serves. And brought word that the selection for President of the University had been narrowed down to 4 candidates. The "big news" was that Governor Heineman was not included in the group of 4. Schafer was appointed to the Board in 2013 by the Governor, and there were questions of Rob being a strong voice in getting Heineman selected as University President. As he said, the decision today made those questions "a moot point". I know of a few votes that will come his way as the result of his bringing that message. He was very impressive in speaking to the leadership role that the University of Nebraska will play in "feeding the world".
