Matson, Rumpza and Nagorski receive Pride award for October

Please join the Staff Senate in congratulating the three recipients of the Auggie Pride Award for the month of October.

Mike MatsonMike Matson, football assistant coach/Athletic Department chaplain/volunteer strength & conditioning coach

Nomination: “Pr. Mike Matson oozes Auggie-ness. All the way down to his Augsburg tattoo on his calf! He is the linebacker coach on the football team, the strength coach for five Augsburg teams, and on staff with campus ministry. The guy is ga-ga for Augsburg…and it is infectious for other staff members and the student body.”

Jennifer Nagorski 071026Kathy-RumpzaKathy Rumpza, director of marketing communication (left), and Jennifer Nagorski, senior creative associate – design

Nomination: “Jen and Kathy consistently go above and beyond the expected. They deliver amazing, quality results and they think about marketing in creative and unexpected ways. They are always thinking of helpful ways to improve our work and they are patient, flexible, and willing to help meet deadlines or work on last-minute projects. It is a pleasure to be able to work with them!”

The Auggie Pride Incentive Program comes out of Staff Senate’s desire to recognize outstanding staff on a more regular basis (monthly), and tap the collective mind power for great ideas. If you would like to nominate someone or have a suggestion, please go to Auggie Pride submission form or email
