Augustana and the surrounding community came together on February 29 to celebrate student achievements at the annual Community Awards Banquet.

The University of Alberta – Augustana campus and the surrounding community came together on February 29 to celebrate student achievements at the annual Community Awards Banquet. Since 1973, businesses and individuals from the Camrose region have helped to support Augustana students.

Augustana alumnus,¬†Wetaskiwin-Camrose MLA, Minister of Justice and Attorney General Verlyn Olson brought greetings from the province, as did Mayor Marshall Chalmers on behalf of the City of Camrose. Dean Dr. Allen Berger celebrated his first Community Awards Banquet this year and introduced alumnus Kelly Graves (’77), who was honoured with the 2011 Distinguished Alumni Award.

You can read our Distinguished Alumni Award recipient’s presentation here, enigmatically titled, “The Fractal Geometry of Matthew Arnold’s Head”. Kelly Graves (’77) sums up exactly how Augustana – and a liberal arts education – prepares our students for the world of tomorrow.

You can read more about Katrina Lexvold, the Dean’s Citation Award recipient for 2011/12, or Samantha Christensen, the Outstanding Independent Work Award recipient, by clicking here.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all of the individuals, businesses and organizations in our community for their continuing support. Congratulations to our very special Anniversary Donors this year!
