May 2018 commencement spotlight: Macy Palmer

Macy Palmer will tell you that attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln was not so much a decision she made as it was the plan she had for life after high school all along. She was going to be a Husker, no questions asked. 

Palmer, a Lincoln native, also seemed destined to work with individuals with special needs, which is exactly what she will do after earning her bachelor’s degree in special education (7-12) Saturday during the university’s undergraduate commencement ceremony at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
