2015 - Kari Krier, University of Nebraska College of Law

Kari Krier was awarded the 2015 Bennett G. Hornstein Memorial Scholarship. Kari attends the University of Nebraska College of Law, and expects to graduate in 2018. Kari received her BA in political science and international studies with minors in Spanish and music in 2003. She earned her MA degree in political science in 2007. Both degrees were from Kansas State University.

After moving to Lincoln, Kari worked at the Department of Health and Human Services, serving as an operations consultant. Although busy with her school and work schedule, Kari has found the time to serve the community in which she lives. She has volunteered her time with Adopt A Family, providing gifts for community children, and as a CDC instructor at St. Peter's Catholic Church. She is a member of the Lincoln Young Professionals group, of RISE Lincoln, an organization for Lincoln’s women business leaders, a member of Junior League of Lincoln, and serves on the board of directors for the Fresh Start Transitional Women’s Shelter.

"Now, as a non-traditional student, I am pursuing my dream of becoming a lawyer. I hope to help people start their businesses, particularly women, and look forward to staying in the Lincoln community for many years to come."
