Class of 2015


Erin Bell took advantage of each opportunity at Doane, leading her to the start of a promising journalism career.

Pierce native Chelsea Henery '15 got her job search out of the way well ahead of graduation—in January, she accepted a high school science teaching position at McCook High School. She will also coach the cheerleading team.

Dylan Relue ’15 sees the world through a lens, and he needed the right college academic program to build on his passion for filmmaking. A conversation with Associate Professor of Theatre Rob McKercher three years ago was exactly what he needed.

When Sara Umland ’15 was in sixth grade, she wrote a paper about what she wanted to do when she grew up: work at a museum. A decade later, the history and English double major from Windsor, Colorado, is well on her way; she was admitted to one of the top museum studies master's programs in the nation before graduation.

Hannah Bauer '15 parlayed an internship into a full-time job as a marketing specialist with Cornerstone Print & Marketing, which is merging with two other Lincoln agencies under the name Firespring.

Sam Rickert '15 always knew he wanted to go to Doane, even if his family might have disowned him if he didn’t. In four years, the music education major has worked with the admissions department, joined a fraternity and toured with several of Doane's musical groups.

Glen Thomas '15 is getting ready to graduate with a bachelor's degree in biology before going into Iowa State University's veterinary medicine program.

Throughout his entire life, Bret Pospisil ’15 was likely to be found at a computer. That's how the Malmo native and Bishop Neumann High School graduate, who came to Doane originally to play basketball, found his true niche.

It all started when Dayna Svoboda ’15 was cut from the volleyball team as a high school sophomore.

After that she didn’t know what to do with her life. Her sister was good at sports, so she “always thought that was what she was supposed to do.” Then her friends convinced her to try out for the school play.

When Kelsey Christensen ’15 came to Doane, she didn’t have a planner.

But she quickly realized between running cross country and track, participating in Gamma Phi Iota sorority, staying caught up with her biochemistry major and finding time for all of her other activities at Doane, she needed to stay organized.
