Magnolia student selected for builders’ program
Sara Knips, a sophomore management major from Magnolia, is among 35 students selected for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Clifton Builders program. 
The program aims to help Nebraska, the nation and the world identify the next generation of high-achieving leaders, entrepreneurs and business developers to create economic growth and prosperity.
