Allison Tietjen from Chester, Nebraska, is a 21-year-old senior at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln where she studies Family Science and plans to pursue a career in Occupational Therapy. Allison’s platform, “United We Stand: Honoring Our Military,” was inspired by her desire to honor her late grandfather who proudly served as a Marine during the Korean War era. In addition to promoting the importance of recognizing the service of our military, Allison has helped raise over $20,000 for Veteran and Gold Star Family Honor Flights. She has also served as a guardian on four of these flights.
