Center for Vocational Reflection

Move to Carlssson
Well, we made it. Come visit us at our new digs in Carlsson Hall…. east end of the first floor. While we are sad to leave our great neighbors in the Library, we have gained new neighbors with the International Programs office and all the departments that were in Sorenson. Please find time to drop in to see our new space. We are all really proud of it.

The CVR welcomes Becca Poock and Wes Keppy to the CVR Team
Becca Poock (sounds like poke) joins the team as the Director of Augie Choice after some adventures in vocation! She earned her Bachelor of Music Education at Wartburg College and Master of Arts at Luther Seminary. Teaching bilingual music education, ministering at a camp, leading congregational ministries, and serving children with mental illness - the journey has been fun and diverse! Becca looks forward to discovering the vocations of the students at Augustana and the adventures to be had through Augie Choice. When she is not arranging Servant-Leader internships, Becca likes to cook, bake, read, kick-box, and check out a good movie. 

Wes Keppy takes on the role of Office Coordinator. Wes is a Quad City native, but spent some time in Arizona. He is a whiz at computers and enjoys dog sitting and disc golfing in his free time. Wes is busy organizing the new office, and learning all the processes to keep the office and building running. Please join us in welcoming these new members of the Augustana Community.

Welcome Becca and Wes
The first CVR party of the year! Welcome reception for Becca and Wes will be Wednesday, August 27 th in the Great Hall of Carlsson from 3:45 until 4:45. Please stop by to welcome them.
