Mr. Mark Winkler served as NCEE’s Executive Chair from 2011 to 2017. Through his generous legacy, Mark’s memorial funds have allowed us to establish a scholarship to support Nebraska teachers wishing to earn a master’s degree in economic education. He was an incredible leader, mentor, and friend. He was passionate about economic and financial education.
His legacy continues through the educators who have been awarded the scholarship.
The latest recipient, Matt Pierson, will complete his program of study in 2023. Matt is a teacher at Bryan High School in Omaha. One of the many ways he impacts students is by offering a duel enrollment classes in economics.
