Cherry County Rural Attendance Centers

Covering an area of over 6,000 square miles, Cherry County is the largest land county in Nebraska. It is large enough to include two time zones and could fit the state of Rhode Island easily within its borders. Helping to educate students in rural Cherry County are four Rural Attendance Centers, each drawing students from several miles away. In these four schools are 10 of some of the finest teachers in the area, educating children where cattle outnumber people almost 50 to 1.
