Join us for the D.J.'s Hero Awards Luncheon on Tuesday, May 9, at 11:45 a.m. at CenturyLink Center Omaha, featuring keynote speaker Jewel.

Eight high school seniors now look forward to a brighter future with the help of a $10,000 scholarship named for D.J. Sokol, son of David and Peggy Sokol. D.J. battled cancer until his death at age 18, showing courage in his struggle and concern for other teens. Scholarship winners will be awarded at the luncheon.
