Blessings brings students and donors together

On May 9, donors and student scholarship recipients came together at the annual Blessings event. Together they enjoyed a meal and prayer service.

Christy Hallenbeck, an M.Div. student who spoke at the event, told of the impact donor gifts had on her ability to come to Luther. "As I wrestled with my call to congregational leadership, I also wrestled with the realities of general life expenses and undergraduate loans, neither of which left any room in my budget for potential tuition charges. It was only when I opened the letter announcing my scholarship that I knew this call might be possible."
