On Wednesday, February 24, Augustana Campus welcomed our community partners and award supporters to meet the students who benefit from their support at our annual Community Awards Banquet. The Community Awards Program has been in place since 1973.

Augustana provides over $420,000 in award support to our students and the Community Awards Program counts for approximately $178,000 of those dollars. We receive over $73,000 in gifts and pledges each year to fund annual award commitments and our award specific endowments earn more than $105,000 in interest each year to funds endowed awards in perpetuity.

This year, we had an additional reason to celebrate. At the Community Awards Banquet, Augustana Campus recognized the outstanding career of Verlyn Olson (’74) with our Distinguished Alumni Award!
