Speck Retires from the Public Policy Center

Kate Speck’s colleagues marvel at how many people she knows across the state. “There’s only one Kate…She has quite a legacy,” says Don Belau, a school psychologist who has worked with Speck for about 15 years. Speck announced her retirement at the end of October as senior research manager at the University of Nebraska Public Policy Center.
