These NDCS teammates are proof that leadership and process improvement go hand in hand. As part of a NDCS First-Level Leader cohort, they each completed Certified Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt training and are ready to bring these problem-solving tools to their respective facilities across the agency.

Process improvement team members Eric Kasik and Shaun Grantski led the group through the belt training. Yellow Belt teammates are the eyes and ears for identifying areas for process improvement within state agencies, and we look forward to the continuous improvement contributions these teammates will bring!

It’s true that books have the power to change lives. Thanks to a donation from the Omaha-based Malcolm X Memorial Foundation, 96 copies of “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” will be added to the libraries of NDCS facilities.

Director Scott Frakes and Acting Programs Administrator Philana Blakely welcomed the books on behalf of the department. Spurred by the recent decision to induct Malcolm X into the Nebraska Hall of Fame, the gift of these books gives the population greater access to read about and learn from Malcolm’s life.

Thank you to the Malcolm X Memorial Foundation for your generous donation!
