Concordia University Chicago senior Kayla Lohman has been recognized as a Student Laureate of The Lincoln Academy of Illinois. Undergraduate faculty at Concordia University Chicago nominated Lohman and CUC President Rev. Dr. Daniel L. Gard presented the award to Lohman.
Lohman proudly accepted the Abraham Lincoln Civic Engagement Award at Concordia’s River Forest campus. The award, which consists of a medallion, a certificate of achievement, and a $1,000 educational grant, is presented every year to a student from each of the four-year degree granting institutions in Illinois, recognizing excellence in both curricular and extra-curricular programs.
“I was surprised and honored when I found out about the award,” said Lohman. “It’s a great blessing and I’m very thankful.”
A native of Kirkwood, Mo., Lohman is completing her final semester of an internship to become a Director of Christian Education in the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Last year, she student-taught fourth grade at Concordia International School in Hanoi, Vietnam.
“We are extremely proud of Kayla’s accomplishments and her desire to serve others, not only as a student, but as she goes forth in the world,” said President Gard. “We are blessed to have Kayla as a part of our university and are very excited for her future.”
