(Omaha, NE) â€“ Micah Laaker was today inducted into Omaha North High Magnet School’s annual Vikings of Distinction alumni honorees.
A 1993 graduate of the technology magnet school in Omaha, Laaker was one of seven to be honored as part of 2015’s event. Established in 1983 to honor past graduates who have “achieved outstanding success in their chosen careers,” the event connects alumni with current students via a school-wide assembly, small group discussions, lifetime recap video, Honors Night participation and an awards banquet (while also raising funds for student scholarships).
In a somewhat prescient move (and while still a student), Laaker had previously designed the 1992 Vikings of Distinction program which honored two of his fellow distinguished friends with scholarships: Sharif Liwaru and Sean Morrison.
Laaker’s framed visage now hangs in the main hallway of the school alongside fellow honorees’ portraits.
