Awards and Recognition

In the fall of 2011, the Friends Organization was featured in The Decorah Newspaper by Laura Goetzinger's article 'Friends Begins at Luther'. The article described the ideas and circumstances that lead to the creation of the organization and also described how the group is structured.

In April 2012 of the group's first operational year, the Luther Leadership Awards Selection Committee awarded the Friends Organization as the "Outstanding Student Organization" at Luther College. Learn more about the 2012 Outstanding Student Organization award winners.
