College of Saint Mary

The Rising Costs of Post-Secondary Education,  Dr. Maryanne Stevens, College of Saint Mary

Last fall, College of Saint Mary’s Board of Directors took a bold step towards making a college education more accessible and affordable for the students it serves. While colleges and universities across the country were making plans to increase tuition and fees for fall 2017, College of Saint Mary went against the grain by taking a step in the opposite direction.

College of Saint Mary President Maryanne Stevens will address the rising costs of post-secondary education and how the value of a college education must remain a topic of conversation among the nation’s educational, business, and political leaders.

The Rotary Honor Roll honors 5% of the 8th grade students in the Omaha Metro area at a luncheon each spring.  The selection of the Rotary Honor Roll recipients was made by their schools on the basis of these categories:

  • Leadership: Works well with others | Respects opinions of others | Honest, dependable and reliable
  • Character – Kind and courteous | Responsible | Demonstrates respect for others and respect for the environment
  • Scholarship –Demonstrates thirst for knowledge | Shows ownership of academic outcomes | Respects teachers & the learning environment
  • Presence – Behaves appropriately | Respects self and others in dress, speech and actions | Responsible for portraying positive self-image

The 57 area schools in our program have selected their students - this year, we will honor 420 eighth grade students at our event. Parents were notified in mid-March with the news.

Cost:  $30 per person.  

On-line reservations will close at noon on May 1, 2017. All seating is reserved, and made in the order that reservations are received.
