Hannah Borg – I was raised on a diversified farm operation near Wakefield, Nebraska where my family grows corn, soybeans, alfalfa and feed cattle. Currently, I am a junior majoring in Agricultural Sciences and Environmental Communications with minors in Engler Agribusiness Entrepreneurship and Nebraska Beef Industry Scholars. My future career plans involve being in agriculture communicator in a role for an agribusiness or commodity group.
John Radil – I am an Agricultural Economics major with minors in Animal Science and the Nebraska Beef Industry’s Scholars. I am from Ord, Nebraska and grew up on a ranching operation. My background in agriculture lead me to UNL to help expand my knowledge and gain valuable experiences. I hope to eventually return to the family operation and take over for my parents after gaining work experience after completing my degree at UNL. I hope to learn more about the importance and potential benefits of immigration in Nebraska through the point of view of a professional.

We (Hannah and John) will be live tweeting from the Heuermann Lecture on Nebraska’s Innovation Campus. The lecture is titled “Nebraska: If Not Immigrants, Who?” and will be presented by Professor Lourdes Gouveia (Ph.D., University of Kansas). The key areas will be discussing the role and impacts of immigration in Nebraska. This event will take place on Tuesday, October 3rd at 3:30 pm in the Conference Center on Innovation Campus. We will be live tweeting during the duration of this event, which typically lasts about an hour. Since this is mainly a lecture rather than an interactive event we will be highlighting the key points of Professor Gouveia’s presentation.
