Micah Waskowiak, Tyler Huddle, and Rob Valente are students in a Research Methods class and were instructed to learn about recreation in a nearby community. Waskowiak, an Omaha native, and Huddle are majoring in Parks and Recreation while Valente is majoring in Travel and Tourism. The three invite all Broken Bow residents to participate in the brief survey. Results will later be presented at a conference and given to the city.

When asked about his parks and rec major, the senior from Omaha said it’s an “amazing field.”

“You deal with so many different kinds of fields like community recreation, campus recreation, ministry; you go out to summer camps and things like that, it’s been huge,” Waskowiak said.

After graduation, Micah says he hopes to help communities with their recreational needs.

“Giving back to the community and being able to provide them with awesome opportunities. Whether that be in programming or just any kind of events or anything like that. I don’t really have a set plan on where I’d like to go, but just knowing that I’d like to go out and help people is the big thing,” he said.
