Public education advocacy non-profit visits Gering Public Schools

As reported by Olivia Wieseler

Gering Public Schools entertained a few new visitors to the area on Monday, Aug. 30. Ann Hunter-Pirtle and Daniel Russell of the Lincoln-based non-profit Stand for Schools toured the district, along with State Sen. John Stinner, who saw the renovated high school for the first time.

Hunter-Pirtle, executive director and founder of Stand for Schools, and Russell, deputy executive director, made the trip from Lincoln out to western Nebraska to learn of the challenges, as well as the positives, that teachers, staff and administrators at Gering faced. It’s something they’ve been doing at public schools across the state since the non-profit forming in 2016.
