On Saturday, November 7th, Augsburg College celebrated the life and legacy of Lois Swenson, during the unveiling of a memorial gift in her honor.
A wooden, handcrafted bench now stands prominently in the atrium of the first floor in Lindell Library, inscribed with: “Lois Ann Swenson. 1935-2012. Live Simply so that others may simply live.”
Lois Swenson was the very embodiment of CGEE’s philosophy that the purpose of education is to create a more just and sustainable world, and we could not be more grateful to her, and her family and friends’ continued support of our organization and mission.
The event had a great turnout, with multiple speakers honoring Lois, and the unveiling of the new bench! Here are a few photos below:
Thanks to everyone involved with the event. Watch our website soon for more information on Lois Swenson, and all of CGEE’s wonderful donors.
