“Athletes, mind your manners.”
This was part of an introductory piece for June Bierbower, a Giltner native who went on to become the first female sports editor for the Daily Nebraskan, the college newspaper at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
It was the late 1930s and Bierbower had graduated from Giltner High School at the age of 15. On Jan. 31, 1939, Bierbower made her debut in the Daily Nebraskan as the first female sports editor in the publication’s history.
