    Students at Nemaha Central Elementary and Middle School accepted the Team Schnak Challenge on Thursday, November 11.  Students read the challenge together as a whole student body in the presence of Kent and Natalie Schnakenberg and Luke Reitz, a student at Nemaha Central High School that has Type One Diabetes. The challenge reads as follows, "We accept the Team Schnak Challenge.  Know the symptoms of Type One Diabetes.  You can save lives. Alert the world.  Go Team Schnak!"

    Kent Schnakenberg, founder of "Team Schnak Strong" has been traveling the United States spreading awareness for this disease.  He rides in JDRF bike-a-thons, speaks at schools, visits families dealing with the disease, and is trying to raise awareness of the symptoms of Type One Diabetes.  The following are the symptoms for the disease: Extreme Thirst, Frequent Urination, Sudden Weight Loss, Change in Appetite, Vision Changes, Strong Fruity Breath Odor, Nausea or Vomiting, Feeling Tired, Drowsy, or Lethargic, Rapid Deep Breathing, Weakness and Confusion, and Unconsciousness.

    Students at NCEMS have teamed up with Kent to help raise awareness. "Go Team Schnak!"
