The Decorah Rotary Club had the pleasure of hosting new Luther College President Dr. Jennifer K. Ward at our regular club meeting on 9/27. Formerly the provost and dean of the college for Centenary College of Louisiana in Shreveport, Louisiana, Dr. Ward was unanimously elected Luther College’s 11th president this past March by the Luther Board of Regents.
During her presentation to our members, Dr. Ward shared insights into the outreach and branding efforts of the college. She highlighted some of the core principles encapsulated by the vision statement "learn actively, live purposefully, and lead courageously...for a lifetime of achievement." She also emphasized a renewed commitment to cultivating the working relationship between Luther College and the City of Decorah. After her comments, Dr. Ward fielded a variety of questions from our members and friends in attendance. Our Club extends its sincere thanks to Dr. Ward for sharing her valuable time with us.
For more information on Dr. Ward's priorities and extensive background please see the appointment notice on the college website: Luther College Headlines 3/19/19
