Congratulations to Luke Miles, '20, on his selection to participate in Youth Leadership Omaha. This is the 25th year of the Youth Leadership Omaha program (14 years with the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce and 11 years with Creighton University's College of Business.)

Youth Leadership Omaha, an interactive leadership development program which informs, motivates, and increases the awareness of selected high school sophomores through issue-oriented seminars and interaction with community decision-makers. This program is a dedicated investment in the Omaha community's future leadership. YLO received over 120 applications and interviewed 80 students this year.

Since its inception in 1992, the annual program has brought together a diverse group of 40 participants each year to examine their schools, neighborhoods, ethnicities, faiths, leadership skills, and life experiences in a forum that allows for the free exchange of ideas, information and advice.

Supported by the Heider College of Business, the Anna Tyler Waite Leadership Program, and community volunteers, student participants meet with leaders from business, government, media, social services and the arts. They learn how the city works and how they can make a difference.

Students will attend nine meeting sessions throughout the school year.
