Founders’ Day Luncheon 2022

To commemorate the founding of the University of Nebraska on February 15, 1869, San Diego Huskers hosted a special Founders’ Day Luncheon on Saturday February 19, 2022 at the Wilson Creek Winery & Vineyard in Temecula . The Chapter Board wishes to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the event.

Derek Engelbart from the University of Nebraska Athletic Department was our keynote speaker.  He presented a series of slides to depict the ongoing  “GO BIG” project to enhance Husker athletic facilities and discussed the North Stadium Expansion that will provide  a state-of-the-art home for the football program. The effort is being financed entirely with private donations.  Construction has started and the anticipated move in date is the fall of 2023.  Derek also answered questions from the group and everyone left knowing more about the Nebraska athletic department.
