Partnership Volunteer In The News

It is no secret that The Partnership For Our Kids has the best volunteers in Omaha, but it is always exciting to see when these amazing individuals are recognized for their many wonderful contributions to the community.

Last week, Bob Herrera, Winners Circle captain for Jackson Elementary, was honored as “Latino Partner of the Year” by the Heartland Latino Leadership Conference. Herrera has been assisting with organizing the conference since 2000. As an information services manager for Mutual of Omaha, his participation with the event has helped to track its evolution. Today the conference draws more than 500 participants, provides scholarships and offers an opportunity for Latino merchants to show their wares.

It’s not surprising that Herrera says his favorite part of being involved with the planning and implementation of the conference is witnessing the excitement of the students that attend. “The students come and get inspired; they leave more motivated,” he said.

The Partnership For Our Kids wishes to extend a special thanks to Captain Herrera for his commitment to the Winners Circle program and for his outstanding service to the entire Omaha community!
