OpenSky Awarded NCSA Friend of Education

A well deserved, and long over due recognition for outstanding service to Nebraska public education went to the OpenSky Policy Institute and Renee Fry, Executive Director on May 30, 2018 at the NCSA Executive Board meeting in Lincoln.

OpenSky received the NCSA Friend of Education Award, which is reserved for non-member individuals/entities that go above and beyond to promote public schools in Nebraska.

In typical style, Renee credited her Board of Directors and staff for the vision and assistance.  NCSA acknowledges the hard work and effort of all concerned with the OpenSky Policy Institute, and especially the dedication, vigilance, and determination of Renee Fry.

History and Mission of OpenSky:  In 2008, several Nebraska organizations recognized the need for a non-partisan organization dedicated to fiscal research and analysis.  Encouraged by a feasibility study revealing broad support from advocacy groups, policy makers and educators, a diverse group of funders from across the state provided the start up funds needed to make OpenSky Policy Institute a reality.

OpenSky's mission is to improve opportunities for every Nebraskan by providing impartial and precise research, analysis, education and leadership.

From NCSA's perspective, OpenSky is a vital and integral part of the present and future success of Nebraska public education.  The Institute provides on-going and essential research and writing on a variety of issues facing our state.  We are truly grateful for the help we receive from this organization.
