Two awards are customarily presented in December – for superior achievement in the field of teacher education, and for outstanding performance as an educator and a student in graduate education studies.

Earlier that morning, a traditional baccalaureate service will be held in The Chapel of the Christ Triumphant at 10 a.m., honoring Lutheran teacher, parish music and lay minister candidates. The Rev. Dr. Timothy Maschke, longtime theology professor at Concordia University Wisconsin, will give the baccalaureate address.
