Mary Moline Wins Augie Pride Award

SIOUX FALLS, SD – Mary Moline, office coordinator for the Nursing Department, is the recipient of the 2010 “Augie Pride” Award.

The award recognizes exceptional service by an Augustana employee. Moline is the 14th member of the Augustana community to receive the award.

“Mary Moline was nominated for the Augie Pride Award by a host of community members who know her as the voice of Augustana Nursing, as well as faculty and students,” said Dr. Margot Nelson, Professor of Nursing and chair of the department. “She is truly the glue that holds the Nursing Department together. She is a listening board for students and faculty, a mentor for work study students, and an extraordinary problem solver; a real "out-of-the-box" thinker.”

Moline received the award at the College’s annual Service Awards recognition program on April 28. At the same time she was honored for her 20 years with the College.

“Her gentle and wise nature, as well as her many talents, are a blessing to the department and the College,” Dr. Nelson said. ”Is it any wonder that she has become known as "Marvelous Mary"?

Moline and her husband, Mark, have two children, Megan and Aaron, who are both Augustana graduates.
