Nebraska Community Foundation Welcomes Michael Wunder as Community Storyteller
Nebraska Community Foundation (NCF; NebraskaHometown.org) proudly welcomes Michael Wunder of Lincoln to its growing network of community-development specialists. Since joining the staff in March as a community storyteller, the Omaha native has worked with numerous volunteers in the NCF network’s more than 250 communities to share their stories of success and help promote their ongoing efforts to strengthen Greater Nebraska. Wunder’s work will appear on NCF’s website, nebcommfound.org, as well as in newsletters and reports.
Wunder graduated from the University of Nebraska-Omaha with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. Prior to joining NCF, he spent five years covering multiple southeast Nebraska communities as a reporter for two weekly newspapers—The Waverly News and The Voice News of Southeast Nebraska. During that time, he received multiple writing and photography awards, include the Nebraska Press Association’s 2017 Outstanding Young Journalist Award for weekly newspaper journalists.
In the last five years, 44,476 contributions have been made to the Nebraska Community Foundation and its affiliated funds. Since 1994, they have reinvested $355 million in Nebraska’s people and places. For more information, visit NebraskaHometown.org.
