Just 31 years ago, a small group of recipients of Admiral certificates, issued by the Governors of Nebraska, gathered in Kearney on April 1, 1986 (in a blizzard!!!!) to start an organization to promote tourism and enjoy the camaraderie of being Admirals!  Our projects include scholarships to juniors at UNK and UNL in their tourism degree programs (since 1992), welcoming the sailors from the USS NEBRASKA SSB739 when they visit the “home state”, and generally learning about our great state and sharing our enthusiasm for Nebraska with others!  Our scholarship winners will be recognized and will “walk the plank”!  The auction of gifts and special memorabilia will help raise funds for our scholarship program.  You won’t want to miss out on the chance to garner one of the items solicited by the tourism students at UNL and in the UNK Tourism Club!
