Moir performs at Gustavus recital
Diana Moir of Eden Prairie, a vocal music education major, performed in a recital on May 14 at Gustavus Adolphus College.
Moir has minors in both dance and theater. She is a member of the Gustavus Choir and the Gustavus Dance Company and works in the costume shop on campus.
Moir is a Björling scholar and studies voice with Dr. Patricia Snapp. This fall, she will be student teaching in the Twin Cities before pursuing a job as a high school choir director. She also plans to teach dance classes and be involved in summer theater productions.
Wagner is Robertson Scholars recipient
Lucas Wagner of Eden Prairie is among 26 incoming first-year students to the Class of 2027 Robertson Scholars. The Scholars selected are some of the brightest and most dynamic leaders from across the globe, representing three continents and 15 states, according to a press release.
“The Robertson Scholars Class of 2027 is a global cohort representing an unprecedented depth and breadth of interests in transforming the world around them,” said Director of Recruitment Kay-Frances Brody. “Student interests encompass the environment, global affairs, public policy, healthcare, entrepreneurship, education, theater, film and the sciences among others. We are confident that this class of Robertson Scholars will make transformational contributions during college and beyond.”
Students are selected based on their commitment to outstanding academic achievement, intellectual curiosity, strength of character, purposeful leadership, and collaborative spirit. In addition to full tuition, room and board, Robertson Scholars receive student privileges at both Duke University and the University of North Carolina — Chapel Hill. During the academic year, the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program provides customized leadership development experiences. Scholars are also awarded three generously funded summer experiences to supplement their learning.
Wagner has chosen Duke University as his home campus, with an intended major in economics and public policy. On the Robertson Scholars website, Wagner states, “I’m deeply curious about the intersection of computer science and public policy in an increasingly interconnected world. Understanding how the United States regulates data privacy, emerging technologies, and international trade in service of the globe lies at the center of what I currently hope to explore, but I’m also eager to develop new, unexpected interests!”
