Students, Donors Connect at Scholarship Event
When Dr. Harold "Doc" Krueger, professor emeritus of Music and founder of the Brass Choir, joined Augustana in 1965, he hoped to inspire students to develop a life-long love of music and learning.
Nearly 50 years later and long after his retirement, he's doing just that through his support of endowed scholarships at Augustana.
Krueger and his wife, Phyllis (pictured, right), joined 185 other endowed and annual scholarship donors at the 2013 Scholarship Event and Luncheon on Sunday, April 21, in Augustana's Morrison Commons. More than 250 student recipients also attended and got the chance to meet the donors who support their scholarships.
"It's just a great event, we love it," Krueger said.
The event included messages from President Rob Oliver; Attorney, past member of the Board of Trustees, and endowed scholarship supporter Vance Goldammer '72; and senior Erin Schoenbeck of Watertown, S.D. Entertainment was provided by the Augustana Keyboard Ensemble.
