Milestone Birthday Celebration: 50 for 50 Campaign

Event Details


Date: October 15 - December 3, 2020

Guess who’s turning 50?

In honor of our leader’s bold heart and belief in the transformational power of education, we celebrate President Stephanie Herseth Sandlin's upcoming milestone birthday with the 50 for 50 Campaign

The countdown is on for the big celebration on Thursday, December 3. Our goal is to raise $50,000 for Augustana Impact Scholarships. These annual scholarships will be available immediately to both new and upper-level students with great financial need, ensuring they have the resources necessary to begin or continue their bold future at AU. 

Join us in creating impact as we celebrate 50 years of impact through leadership, service and generosity.

Throughout the next 50 days we will tell the inspirational story of this proud South Dakotan, whose deep roots in the prairie have kept her grounded and provided strength for her trailblazing journey, which has broken barriers, built bridges, and created female firsts.
