Creating Connections: Marisa Macy supports families, early childhood educators across Nebraska
12 Oct 2023
Marisa Macy was just a few weeks into her new job at the University of Nebraska at Kearney when her office telephone rang. The man on the other end of the line – a high school science teacher and father from St. Paul – needed her help.
His daughter and several other children in the small, central Nebraska community were supposed to start preschool that fall. However, there weren’t enough spots available in the town of roughly 2,400 residents, so a group of community members decided to create a new classroom in the basement of a local church.
