On Thursday, June 13th, Centura sophomores Trey Schultz and Nick Kortz traveled to Winter Quarters in Florence (Omaha) along with Social Studies teacher, Mrs. Beth Gross, and Nebraska author, Dr. Jean Lukesh.  There, they persuaded the eight-member panel of the Nebraska Hall of Fame Commissioners to induct Solon Borglum into the Nebraska Hall of Fame.

Solon Borglum was a world-renowned sculptor who earned the title, “Sculptor of the Prairie”.  Solon’s local contribution included:  ranching, carving a giant Indian face on the side of St. Michael’s bluff on land owned by Trey’s grandfather, Charles Keptar; helping construct White Cloud Schoolhouse, which sits near Nicholas’s home; and serving the area as a gunless sheriff.  In addition to the above, Solon was a painter, one of the first Boy Scout Leaders in America, a World War I veteran and Croix de Guerre recipient (without ever carrying a gun) and much, much more.


Nick and Trey will be traveling to the Capitol on Wednesday, August 2nd with Mrs. Gross and Dr. Lukesh for the final hearing.  Then, the inductee to the Nebraska Hall of Fame will be announced and televised at approximately 3:00 p.m.  Trey and Nick are to be commended for their hard work and diligence to this project which begin almost 2 years ago while students in Mrs. Gross’s Nebraska History class.  These young men have represented Centura with PRIDE.  Both are earning a statewide reputation as fine, young historians.  Good job Trey and Nick!
