Here is Barb Solomon of Lincoln and Donna Lefler of Fairmont, NE. Mrs. Solomon was “crowned” today in Seward, NE as Nebraska’s Young Mother of the Year 2015. Mrs. Lefler was “crowned” as Nebraska’s Mother of the Year 2015. The event was coordinated by Jean Kolterman, a former Nebraska Mother of the Year and held at the Saint John’s Lutheran Church here in Seward. The announcement of the Mothers for 2015 followed a Brunch and comments from several of the previous “winners”. I had the privilege of being on the team of Judges who considered the several applicants in each category. It was an interesting experience since the documented activities of each applicant demonstrated outstanding “Mothering”. American Mothers, Inc. is "committed to valuing mothers through service and education since 1935". While not all 50 states participate in the program, Nebraska has the record for having had 5 National Mother’s of the Year including Joan Burney who was among the group in Seward today.
