Shortly after Martha Stortz (she prefers to be called Marty) settled into her new home in Minneapolis, she did four things:
- she became a member of the Seward Co-op
- she joined the Midtown YWCA
- she took her bicycle in for “retooling” at the Hub, and
- she took herself on walking tours of the Seward, Longfellow, and Downtown East neighborhoods.
And those activities, along with a genuine love for the city and an infectious enthusiasm for Augsburg’s mission, are what make her a true Auggie.
Stortz came to Augsburg this summer as the second Bernhard M. Christensen Professor of Religion and Vocation. She succeeds David Tiede, who retired and subsequently took a position as interim president of Wartburg Theological Seminary.
