We would like to extend a special thank you to LeAnn Obrecht who retired from University of Nebraska at Kearney on July 1st. LeAnn served as the UNK representative on the Community Partners board since 2005.
In that time, LeAnn served as chair of Positive Pressure, leading the coalition in developing policy and advocacy to prevent underage drinking. She worked diligently to coordinate community and campus prevention programs to produce a greater impact. Thank you, LeAnn, for your commitment to building a healthier Buffalo County. We wish you the best in your upcoming adventures!
“LeAnn was a wonderful addition to Positive Pressure for so many years,” said Positive Pressure Coordinator Tana Nelsen. “She was an essential part in expanding the TIPS (Training in Intervention ProcedureS) program onto UNK’s campus and was even coalition chair in 2010. We will truly miss her leadership and enthusiasm.”
