8 North NSBE Jr. Chapter Visits Union Pacific

On Friday, May 8, the Omaha North High Magnet School NSBE Jr. Chapter went on a field trip to Union Pacific (UP). Along with Mr. Williams (advisor), eight of the twelve members had a chance to learn about what UP does and how it impacts our society. The students that attended were: Rashad Erwin-Ingram, Tre’Von McKay, Willie Stennis, Raquel Sturdivant, Abram Walker, and Preston Woodall. Two of our graduating seniors, Seth Quartey and Tailla Strawn, returned to school and also attended the field trip. While at UP, the students met with various engineers and learned about their experiences at UP as well as what it takes to become an engineer. The students also went on a tour of their facilities. Our two graduating seniors are attending college next year and pursuing degrees in architectural engineering and information technology.  (Submitted by Mr. Williams)
7 Landmarks Kimball Prize Winners

Two engineering students won first place in the Architectural Historical Omaha design competition. Sponsored by the Landmarks of Omaha Corporation, the competition seeks to raise awareness of the architecture and important buildings in our city.  This year’s project centered on the Corby Theater located at 2805 North 16th street. The theater has been closed for nearly fifty years. The building needs significant repair but is a beautiful example of architecture of that period.

Tailla Strawn and Justine Kohtz outlasted all OPS teams redesigning and rethinking the Corby Theater. They researched ownership and history of the building as well as the neighborhood and various businesses associated and housed in the structure. They spent hours going through Omaha non-fiction in the library. The final submission included three presentation boards; one a collage of the history of the building, one art piece created with the use of a panel from 35mm Millennium movie projector and one a historic review of the Times of the Corby Theater.

Justine explained “…I researched more and went farther out of my way for this project than I’ve ever done for anything else.” And from Tailla, “This project helped me to really gain a love for discovering the historical significance of such buildings as the Corby.

Nice going ladies.
7 Please join us for Senior Scholarship Night on May 7 as we honor the academic accomplishments of our graduating seniors.  The program starts at 7:00 PM in the auditorium.
