Appreciation Financial Establishes Scholarships, Supports Local Schools

Appreciation Financial ( is proud to announce several recent initiatives in support of local education programs in Nebraska, including the funding of two new scholarships and a donation to help meet the needs of Omaha Public Schools students.

To support the students of the Native Indigenous Centered Education program, Appreciation Financial has created a $500 scholarship for a NICE program student. With students in several schools across the district, Appreciation felt it was important to help NICE have a scholarship that was specifically for a student involved with the program. The scholarship will be awarded at the NICE Honors Ceremony on April 13.

In recognition of the amazing work done at the Blackburn Alternative Program by Jodi Pesek and her staff, Appreciation Financial has created a $500 scholarship for a Blackburn student. This scholarship will help a student that has shown great effort and achievement while at Blackburn to continue their education.

Finally, Andrew Storz, a local agent representing Appreciation Financial, presented Principal Dana Barker of Sherman Elementary with $500 in gift cards to help provide students with needed items. The gift cards were given during a Teacher Appreciation Lunch held at the school.

Appreciation Financial is a retirement consulting brokerage that works almost exclusively with public school employees offering education and safe retirement and insurance products. “Serving the people that serve us every day is both an honor and privilege that we are grateful for,” Storz noted.
