Johnson-Brock TeamMates Chapter Selected as Community of the Year

Johnson-Brock TeamMates Chapter Selected as Community of the Year

The Johnson-Brock TeamMates Chapter has been selected by the TeamMates organization as Community of the Year. Johnson-Brock began a TeamMates mentoring program in 2013 with four mentor/mentee matches. The chapter currently serves over 92 matches.

The TeamMates Mentoring Program began in 1991 with the vision of University of Nebraska Head Football Coach Tom Osborne and his wife Nancy. Coach Osborne felt that the athletes in his program could make an impact on the middle school students, and twenty-two football players began meeting with middle school students in the Lincoln Public Schools. Of the 22 original mentees, 21 went on to graduate from high school while one left school early to pursue a successful Motocross career. Eighteen of the original mentees also obtained some form of post-secondary education.

Motorcycle Donor Visits Museum

Motorcycle Donor Visits Museum

It’s wonderful,” said Caroline Kline of Santa Fe, New Mexico as she stopped in Tecumseh to see the Montz Motorcycle Museum where her two World War II motorcycles are currently displayed. These two World War II motorcycles were donated to the Montz Motorcycle Museum in honor of Kline’s father and uncles who served in World War II.

“I hope that all veterans enjoy the display of the two World War II motorcycles,” said Kline. The motorcycles are a 1942 Harley Davidson WLA and the other is a WL, which is one of only 142 of this model Harley Davidson made. The motorcycles have been restored in honor of her father George C. Kline II, and two uncles, Leo Petroski and Raymond Kline.
