Dear Class of 1987 Classmates,
I was sorry to miss this year’s homecoming, but from what I’ve heard, it was a very special Luther homecoming this year. Spectacular fall weather; the traditional weekend events—Friday evening alumni dinner; Saturday Hoslett lecture, class reunions, and Flamingo Ball; Sunday worship and afternoon concert – all combined to make this weekend what alumni have come to value. This year, of course, included the rare but special opportunity of launching a new era in the life of the college, the inauguration of Dr. Paula J. Carlson as the college’s 10th president. The inauguration ceremony itself was a true celebration of Luther’s legacy and a call to unite around a common vision for the future. President Carlson’s address was especially memorable, and you can watch it online, if you wish, at https://www.luther.edu/president/.
