The Twin Cities Area Luncheon and Speaker Series is open to all alumni, parents and friends of the college. The Lunch Connection is a monthly luncheon and speaker event hosted by the college. It is a great chance to network and socialize with others in the Twin Cities area and learn from interesting and dynamic speakers.
Speaker: Emily Holm '16
Communications and Marketing Fellow, Luther College
"Turning Education into Action"
Emily's presentation will reveal the many valuable lessons we can learn from the world's youngest peacemakers and how a Luther education can be used to truly "serve with distinction for the common good."
Emily Holm is a recent graduate from the Class of 2016 and is originally from Delano, Minnesota. During her time at Luther, she studied in Norway with the Peace Scholars program and later found herself working at an interfaith summer camp in Seattle, Washington called Kids4Peace International. This unique and inspiring camp brings together children from the Middle East and the US for two weeks of leadership and conflict resolution training. Most recently, Emily developed a children's curriculum for peace building with Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota. She currently works at Luther in the communications and marketing department.
NEW this year! Music will be provided at each of the luncheons. For the September luncheon, we are pleased to have the Stringwinds Quintet to perform for us. (Luther graduates - Catherine Preus '91 piano, Mary Preus '63 flute, Kathleen Olsen violin, Matt Bertand bassoon, and Jonathon Preus '61 clarinet)
