A longtime member of the Aggie Community, Sandi Wills is a native of Curtis and has lived her entire life in a neighborhood south of the NCTA campus.

Ms. Wills serves as a custodian at NCTA and has since 1994. Her main responsibilities lie in cleaning the dorms and other buildings around the college during her shift that typically runs from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. This involves everything from setting up and tearing down events on campus, cleaning restrooms before, during, and after functions, and ensuring entryways and glass doors are always clean.

Before coming to NCTA 26 years ago, Sandi was a custodian at Medicine Valley Public Schools. Since arriving at NCTA, her work shifts and duties have evolved, but Sandi has always taken pride in the campus and ensuring it is clean for students, staff, and visitors of NCTA.

Sandi will be the first to tell you that her favorite part of working at NCTA is the students. She enjoys getting to know each and every one of them and helping them whenever the time presents itself.

Many people in the Curtis community know Ms. Wills for her kind heart and giving spirit. Outside of her role at NCTA, Sandi enjoys knitting, baking, and cooking for friends and other members of the area.

One of her favorite hobbies though is bowling. Sandi previously bowled with a women’s league in North Platte, and she enjoyed the sport and the friendships of the team members.

There is no doubt that Ms. Wills has left a lasting impact on the Curtis community and the college. NCTA is grateful for Sandi’s dedication, hard work, and kindness.

Part of the University of Nebraska system, the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture is a two-year institution with a statewide mission of preparing students for successful careers in agriculture, veterinary technology and related industries. NCTA is known for its affordable tuition, high job-placement rate for its graduates, and for the success of student teams in competitive activities including crops judging, ranch horse events, livestock judging, shotgun sports, stock dog trials, and intercollegiate rodeo. The college is consistently ranked as one of the best two-year schools in the nation.
