Students earn Davis Peace Project Award

Luther students Holly Harris (‘16) and Fatimetu Emhamed (‘16) have won a Davis Project Grant, a $10,000 annual grant to help communities around the world.
Harris and Emhamed’s project will focus on building restroom facilities for a school in Algeria.
“Fatimetu had this idea to improve her school and the community she grew up in, which is a refugee camp in Algeria, to prompt a higher quality of learning at the school,” Harris said.
Emhamed’s community primary school does not have restroom facilities. This creates a problem for the children who attend the school, many of whom live too far away from the school to use their own restrooms during the school day.
“In that school they don’t have bathrooms,” Emhamed said. “I used to study in that school. I used to live nearby the school so I never had any issues, but a lot of people come from really far away because they like to study in the school.”


Golf prepares for Conference

For Luther women’s and men’s golf teams, the spring season is in full swing. Both teams kicked off their spring competition with Spring Break trips to California and Florida, respectively.
“We had a blast [in California],” women’s captain Maddie Bouslog (‘17) said. “We had three days of actual tournament play and then had two free days ... That was our kickoff to spring season and since then we’ve been practicing pretty much daily.”
During their training trip, the women competed at the California Lutheran Regals Invitational and placed 11th out of 12 teams. On April 11-12, they lost to Wartburg in a dual competition.
“Wartburg is one of the top teams in the country, so it is always good to go against really good golfers,” Head Women’s Golf Coach Eric Karius said.
The women will have their first and only spring home competition against St. Mary’s on Thursday, April 23 at Oneota Golf and Country Club; tee off is at 12:30 p.m.
