It is a happy day for my family as my youngest was chosen, as a representative of Luther College, to receive a “Peace Scholarship”
The Peace Scholars program is an outgrowth of the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, and is the Norwegian Nobel Institute’s only such program or academic affiliation outside of Norway.
This summer she will be attending a seven-week academic experience held in Lillehammer and Oslo, Norway.
In addition she will be attending the three day Nobel Peace Prize Forum featuring feature former United States President and Nobel Laureate Jimmy Carter.
It’s hard for me to imagine what she will see and learn as a result of this opportunity.
