Tyler Pribbeno has a ready response when asked why he returned to Imperial, Nebraska, to live and work.
When asked where the the town in southwest Nebraska is located, he says:
“I tell them where it is and what I like about Imperial, and then I invite them to visit.”
Pribbeno’s desire to return to Imperial started long before he actually left the Chase County community to attend college. He recalls a carefree childhood and high school days where the adults in his community cared about his well-being. “And not just about the basketball game.”
He’s grateful for the financial support he received from the Imperial Community Foundation Fund to help with his college costs.
“That said to me, my community is investing in me. They’re wanting me to succeed,” he said.
And please consider returning.
