From Nebraska to the World: Batumi, Republic of Georgia

IMG_1927Eric Jackson was part of the NWU men’s basketball team that The Harry and Reba Huge Foundation took to Estonia in the summer of 2012 (they took the women’s team the following year).  After that experience, Eric was transformed:  after graduation, he returned to Estonia to complete a course in e-government, followed by a Fulbright to Georgia, then another trip to Estonia, and is now back in Nebraska, pondering graduate schools and a possible career in the foreign service.  Eric is an example of why The Huge Foundation is so focused on helping students travel and study abroad as part of their overall mission to expand the students’ horizons and deepen their understanding of the world the their place in it.
