Alex Cassady, Shelby Selland, Hannah Norem, Abel Negash and Rachel Challes have been named the 2018 Covenant Award recipients.
As Augustana celebrates the 100th anniversary of its move to Sioux Falls, and in honor of Verdier 2018, the annual, week-long celebration of the University's five core values, we caught up with past Covenant Award recipients who are living and working in the city to learn how the moral compass each student develops at Augustana continues to guide them in their lives today. We learned that these alumni continue to build community, reach out to those in need, provide ministry, pursue excellence and celebrate the liberal arts.
