A new study finds that while public speaking might be the most common fear, it isn’t number one.
UNO Public Speaking Fundamentals program director Karen Kangas Dwyer and Speech Center Coordinator Marlina Davidson did the study. It revisited a 1973 study that found more people feared public speaking than death.
The Omaha Public Library is offering two workshops to help teens build confidence and learn life skills.
The library is offering the two sessions in collaboration with LifeBound. Gary Wasdin, Executive Director for the Omaha Public Library, says this is the first time the library is offering programs like this. He says "Success in Middle School” addresses the transition that 6th and 7th graders undergo.
