Administrative Assistant | Gail Page
Gail has worked for Boys Town for more than eight years. She started as a food service specialist in the Great Hall. When the alumni position became open she took her previous years of administrative experience and was interviewed and selected for the position. Gail is a familiar voice to many alumni and a friendly face to all who visit the Alumni Office. She has worked diligently to keep alumni informed and has been instrumental in the significant increase in lifetime membership enrollments. Gail also provides administrative support services for the Hall of History staff. She has two children and enjoys working in her yard.
The BTNAA could not operate and do all the things it does without a dedicated cadre of volunteers who give of their time unselfishly to help where needed.
Jerri Novotny is a tireless volunteer and has been associated with the BTNAA since its founding. Her work as assistant treasurer is valuable and allows the association to manage it finances in a timely manner. Jerri also manages the Lifetime Member program and has, for years, been instrumental in insuring that new Lifetime Members receive their membership cards, welcome gift and that their bronze plaque is installed in the Hall of History. We are grateful for all that Jerri has done for the BTNAA and the BTNAA Auxiliary over these many years.
We rely on the Newsletter Advisors to suggest stories for the newsletter, review and proof read each edition before it goes out and generally let us know of items of news that might be of interest to our brother and sister alumni.

Stan Struble, '68
Stan Struble brings a wealth of talent as an internationally published writer to the Newsletter Advisory group. He has four novels published in the United States and several other countries including Spain. His insight, knowledge of the written word and many years experience as a member of the Boys Town staff, including a stint as the Alumni Director, make him an invaluable member of this volunteer group. Stan worked for many years in the Boys Town Aftercare department and has a unique understanding of our Boys Town alumni and maintains contact with hundreds of those whom he mentored, counseled and helped over the years. People still call the alumni office looking for Stan just to say hello and let him know how they are doing. He was inducted into the BTNAA Hall of History at the 2015 Biennial Convention. He retired from his work at Boys Town in 2015 and continues to write and teaches college level classes in Omaha.

Steve Postert has been a long serving member of the both the BTNAA and BTNAA Scholarship Fund board of directors as treasurer of both organizations. He has served as a Newsletter Advisor for many years. He dedicates many hours of his time in handling the financial matters of both the boards he is a member of and is always ready to lend a helping hand when asked. Steve's review of the draft newsletters is always thorough and on the spot. During biennial conventions Steve can be found volunteering to help just about everywhere you look--especially at registration. He also volunteers to help with the refreshment bar on the opening night of the Social. Steve is the coordinator for the Boys Town Alumni Choir rehearsals for the annual Christmas Midnight Mass at Dowd Chapel. This tradition could not be kept alive without the tireless efforts of Steve in coordinating and singing in the group. He is ready to help whenever the call goes out for assistance.

Lisa volunteers at our Biennial Conventions to help with registration and it couldn't get done without her help and support.
