Though many alumni should be recognized for their commitment to service, great work does go unnoticed. In choosing recipients of the Alumni Achievement, Sent Forth and Called to Serve Awards, the National Alumni Board strives to recognize influential Cobbers. Please join them in sharing the stories of your fellow Cobbers and honoring this years' award recipients.
Becoming Responsibly Engaged in the World
I think I will continue to be responsibly engaged in whatever community I’m part of by helping build understanding in my little corner of the world.

Through Concordia’s impressive study away programs, I studied abroad for more than a year. Each country I lived in was vastly different from the last and each taught me important lessons about life and about myself as a young global citizen.
Concordia gave me the opportunity to live and study in Pamplona, Spain, which began my love affair with travel and living abroad. Since then, I've lived and worked in Ecuador, Germany, and now Hong Kong.
