Remembering Nebraska's John F. Kennedy College

The Omaha World-Herald reprinted an interesting article this week that originally appeared in the paper in 2003, "Nebraska's Kennedy College survived just 10 years but was a pioneer and powerhouse in women's sports."  David Harding, the article's author, indicates that the institution briefly and successfully provided opportunities for female student athletes.

A previous College History Garden post provides links to an alumni web site and another article on the college.  John F. Kennedy College operated from from 1965-1975 in Wahoo, NE. Kennedy College occupied the campus that was previously the home of Luther Junior College founded in 1883. Luther merged with Midland College (Fremont, Nebraska) in 1962 and the name was changed to Midland Lutheran College, now Midland University.
