Recognizing the Successes of LCUR Students and Alumni

As we head into the summer months, we would like to take a moment to highlight and congratulate the following Luther students and new alumni on their many accomplishments this past year:

Andie Chernoff (U’19), a new LCUR graduate with a Bachelor of Science, Honours, in Psychology, received the Luther Medal of Distinction at Luther College’s Spring 2019 Conovcation. The award is presented to a Luther student graduating with a superior academic record of 85% UGPA or higher, and who has demonstrated leadership and service in the community according to the goals of Luther College. The community is deemed to include faith community, Luther College, the University of Regina, and society at large. Andie said of the award, "I am honoured to have received the Luther Medal of Distinction as it reflects my dedication to academics and humanity, both of which were encouraged and fostered through Luther College." We wish Andie success in all of her future endeavours.
