Distinguished Alumni Award for 2019

Miss Margaret Kruse will receive the Distinguished Alumni award at Graceful Evening on March 16.  Margaret Kruse taught 5th grade at Grace Lutheran School for 40 years, from 1963 through 2003. She’s also a graduate of the school.

Miss Kruse may not have achieved widespread fame or amassed a large fortune in the usual ways of the world, but she is legendary and influential among former students. They worked diligently to live up to her high expectations for them. She exercised their minds with animal classification (from kingdoms all the way down to species) and challenged them to learn and report all there was to know about their chosen state in the yearlong state notebook project. She also made sure they understood what it means to be “saved by grace” with her Reformation history unit each fall. She continues to be someone who delights in learning, and she is still sharing that love of learning with Grace Lutheran School students at special times during the school year.
