Nebraska Refugees Study America, Get Diplomas

At the Center for People in Need in Lincoln, refugees and immigrants from nations around the world- Sudan, Iran, Mexico, Burma and more- call America, and Nebraska, home.

On this day they became graduates. Graduates of a special course in leadership sponsored by Health and Human Services.

Over the course of several weeks, they learned what being an American is all about. And the inherent rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities that come along with it.

Some left war torn countries and oppressive governments where even freedom of speech is only a dream.

On this afternoon, as they handed out diplomas, they smiled and shared some laughs. They ate some tasty food from all corners of the globe.

There was one thing they all had in common....they came here to improve themselves and their lives as Americans.
