Loren Lippincott is a fifth generation Nebraskan, farmer, veteran and conservative Republican candidate for the Nebraska Legislature.
Loren grew up along with two brothers and a sister on the Lippincott family farm a few miles north of Central City in Merrick County and he lives on that same farm today. Loren learned about the value of hard work and the importance of lending a helping hand to your neighbor. He attended primary school in a one-room school-house and was an Eagle Scout. In high school, Loren was class president, student body president, athletic club president, and a four-year letter winner in sports.
He attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and his freshman year he walked on the football team as a defensive back. It was Tom Osborne's first year as head coach of the Cornhuskers.
Loren worked his way through college, at one time holding down five jobs in addition to taking a full class load. He worked for Secretary of State Allen Beermann and served two years as a page in the Legislature. Loren worked at KOLN-TV and was a disc jockey at KBHL-FM. He sold concessions at the Husker football games. After graduating from Nebraska with a degree in broadcast journalism, Loren worked full-time at KOLN-TV before moving to Denver.
Eventually he joined the U.S. Air Force and graduated third in a class of 700 from Officer Training School. Loren attended pilot training school at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma, finished near the top of his class and was selected to return as an instructor. After three years as an instructor Loren was awarded his first choice for duty assignment as an F-16 pilot and was stationed at Ramstein Air Base in Germany. Loren was his squadron's overall Top Gun — following competition in air-to-air dogfighting; air-to-ground conventional bombing; and, air-to-ground nuclear bombing.
After ten years in the Air Force and after earning the rank of Captain, Loren was honorably discharged and joined Delta Air Lines as a commercial airline pilot. He retired as an International Captain on the Boeing 767 after a thirty year career with Delta.
Loren Lippincott has two sons and three grandchildren, and attends Central City Bible Church.
