 For whom the bells toll

 

The bells of Henningson Memorial Campanile rang for members of the UNO Young Alumni Academy Class of 2015, who ended their eight-month leadership development program April 30. The award-winning academy, designed for alumni 35 and younger, facilitates peer networking and professional growth. The group’s capstone session included a tour of UNO’s 168-foot-tall Campanile followed by a ceremony at the Thompson Center. Carillonneur Dr. James Johnson serenaded the group with several songs during its 30-minute stay high above campus. Members also took a turn playing, including Carly Beckman’s take on “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” and renditions by several others of “Chopsticks.” The campanile tour was one of eight sessions held at unique locations on and off campus. That included a behind-the-scenes tour of the CenturyLink Center and time flying in the cockpit of UNO’s Flight Simulator.
