The 2018 Class of Fellows of the Nebraska State Bar Foundation was inducted Saturday, March 9, in Omaha at the Bar Foundation’s 31st Annual Fellows Dinner.
Among the new Fellows is Jeffrey Jarecki of Albion, shareholder at Jarecki Maul. He is president of the Albion Economic Development Corporation and past president of the Nebraska Land Title Association.
He and his wife, Lindsey, are involved in planning and fundraising for Boone Beginnings Early Childhood & Family Development Center set to open in 2020 in Albion.
The 30 Nebraska lawyers and judges in the Class of 2018 join 761 colleagues who have been nominated for the honor over the past five decades. Lawyers are invited to become Fellows based on their integrity and character, their distinction in the profession or in the community, their contributions to the profession or the community, and their contributions to the Bar Foundation.
Steve Guenzel of Lincoln, president of the Bar Foundation, was master of ceremonies for the event in Omaha. The Bar Foundation’s Law-Related Education theme for 2018-2019 is “Championing Civility.”
“At a time of great political and public discord, the Nebraska State Bar Foundation offers resources and programs to help educators and others teach and model ways to explore and discuss controversial topics in a rational and respectful manner,” Guenzel said.
The Bar Foundation offers Law-Related Education programs for Nebraska teachers and students and manages the Roman L. Hruska Institute for the Administration of Justice, the Standing Bear Scholarship Fund and the Dan Jewell Trial Institute, Guenzel said.
