Congratulations to September Auggie Pride Award Winners: Jeff Swenson ’79 and Ana Eliason!
Jeff Swenson ’79 has been a part of the Augsburg College community since 1975 and currently serves as Athletic Director.
Here is what Jeff’s colleagues who nominated him had to say:
“Jeff has been working tirelessly this summer to raise funds for the new scoreboard to recognize Edor Nelson ’38 and put on a major 100th birthday event for Edor in August. He has also been instrumental in securing fellowships for the athletic department which has led to the back-to-back largest recruiting classes in the history of the Augsburg athletic department.”
joined Augsburg in 2011 and serves as the Career and Internship Specialist in the Strommen Center.
Here’s what Jeff and Ana’s colleagues who nominated them had to say:
“Since coming to Augsburg three years ago, Ana has spent hours reviewing the internship process and working with faculty and various departments to see that the process is smooth and easy to follow. Her care, dedication, and commitment to serving students, faculty, and off-campus partners is incredible and it is so often highlighted in her work with internships at Augsburg. Ana plays a big role in designing those “wow” moments when our site supervisors also have a great experience hiring an Auggie.
