As we wrap up another academic year at CUAA and celebrate our graduates, these individuals have stood out for their accomplishments.
Each year, the university recognizes individuals who received special awards, as submitted by their department’s faculty and/or staff. Whether their vocations will take place in a church setting or in the world, the Concordia community celebrates the accomplishments of each of our grads and looks forward to the good work they’ll undertake in the future!
