Dear Colleagues and Students:
I would like to invite you to a special memorial service for Dr. Robert Kell on Wednesday at 4:00 P.M. in the Augustana Chapel. Chaplain Craig Wentland will lead the service; faculty colleagues and students who were close to Rob will participate.
We have scheduled this event in consultation with Rob’s wife, Melanie. The time is not perfect, as some classes will be in session, but we were asked to try to accommodate Melanie’s teaching colleagues here in Camrose who were unable to attend the funeral in Edmonton last Thursday.
I trust this will be an opportunity not only to remember Rob and to share what he meant to all of us, but to celebrate his many contributions to Augustana (and thereby also many of our core values as an educational community).
Dr. Allen H. Berger
Dean and Executive Officer
University of Alberta Augustana Campus
