GKSOM Alum captures first place in national competition

Winning a recent national competition reinforced a life philosophy for University of Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music alum Nathaniel Sullivan -- that being open to all opportunities and styles of music will be a key to a successful life and career.

Sullivan won first place in the 2018 National Music Theater Competition this past weekend in midtown Manhattan. He collected a $5,000 cash award along with other prizes and opportunities. But maybe even more importantly, he learned something about himself.
