Educational Kiwanis Program

Sylvana Airan, Assistant Director of Business Contracts and Student Services in the Housing Department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, was our speaker at Kiwanis today. She is from Pakistan where her father was a civil engineer and her mother a High School Principal. She was raised a Christian in an English speaking home and came to USA and Lincoln, NE in 1978 to attend college where she received her BA. She spoke of her native country, is shown holding a Cricket bat and showed other artifacts. In addition to her position and being part of the Lincoln Speakers Bureau, she is the director of the Passion play at a local church in Lincoln, which involves about 200 people with live animals and special effects. She also serves on the board for Back to the Bible. She quoted from the Koran and the commitment of Muslims to it’s teaching though few can read it since it is written in Arabic. It was a most enlightening presentation.
