Executive Assistant to the CEO
Betty Wagner joined the Nebraska Community Foundation team in 2018 as Executive Assistant to the CEO. In her position, Betty not only works with the administrative team on a daily basis, but also serves as liaison to the NCF Board of Directors. You will generally find Betty entrenched in calendars, schedules, communications and organizational details, however, Betty will be the first to tell you that working with people is her passion.
Prior to arriving at NCF, Betty had been the Executive Assistant at Grand Island Central Catholic Development Foundation. Before that, she spent 13 years as the Executive Assistant for Grand Island Public Schools and had also served as a Divisional Office Manager for the City of Grand Island for 11 years.
Having grown up on a farm in Central Nebraska, Betty had no problem immediately identifying with the NCF vision and mission statements. She clearly understands the importance of having successful communities of all sizes in Greater Nebraska and still finds her peace and solitude in areas where there are open spaces and friendly neighbors. It is Betty’s belief that Nebraska offers the best in those areas!
Betty and her husband, Ron, have three grown children and eight grandchildren. Spare time and areas of interest generally focus on grandchildren activities, all types of sports, camping, listening to music, horses, Huskers, and all things in the outdoor world.
