During this Spring Semester, The Larrabee Center hosted a Senior Social Work Practicum student, Abbey Strong, from Wartburg College. It has truly been a pleasure to have Abbey interning with us and we wish her all the best as she graduates from Wartburg. Yesterday, we had the opportunity to participate in RICE day at Wartburg College. We were honored to be the recipient of the Social Work Department's Outstanding Community Partner Award. Accepting the award is John Lord, Program Manager. Over the years, it has been a wonderful partnership to share the opportunity for social work students to intern with us and gain valuable experience in the field. We have also had a number of students jump start their career in social work with us working as support staff. It's been mutually beneficial and we look forward to continued partnership opportunities.
Brilliant artistry at today’s Masterwork Concert with Castle Singers & Kammerstreicher! Stunning selections and collaborations! Thank you to Dr. Nicki Toliver and Dr. Rebecca Nederhiser, along with Dr. Suzanne Torkelson and Dr. Jennifer Larson, for inspiring and challenging musicians at Wartburg College!

Students had another set of great visits today! First stop was the always entertaining and exciting Dr. Bec at Wartburg College. He and his students do an awesome job of showcasing science in education. He did a genetics lab with students, showed off many critters, and sent students home with their own mini aquaponics system. We grabbed a quick lunch at Pizza Ranch in Waverly and the last stop was at All Seasons Harvest near Cedar Falls. This company uses tilapia to grow lettuce, cucumbers, jalapeños, chives, basil, cilantro, and even micro greens that he supplies to restaurants like GreenHouse Kitchen, Beaver Hills Country Club, and George’s Local. Brian gave us a very concise but thorough tour of their operation! Great day overall!

Lexi: My Wartburg research will continue to help me in my field - Wartburg College

Lexi Retz ’21 learned first-hand how close faculty relationships can open doors for Wartburg students.

“Dr. (Shaheen) Munir reached out to me at the beginning of this year [2021] and expressed that she would like to have me apply for the Midwest Psychological Association Conference. We worked together on my submission because I couldn’t present my entire study during the conference. We finalized all of that, submitted it, and in February I found out that I got accepted,” Retz said.

On World Water Day (Tuesday, March 22), members of the Wartburg College Water to Thrive organization and student-athletes participated in a "Shorten the Walk" event to bring awareness to those around the world with water insecurity. The students started on the Wartburg campus and walked to the Cedar River where they filled plastic water containers that they then carried back to campus - a task completed by women daily in Ethiopia.

In addition to bringing awareness to the issue, the student organization also is raising money to fund three wells in the Daela and Tigray regions of Ethiopia. Learn more about their efforts at https://www.watertothrive.org/campaigns/shorten-walk-wartburg-college/.
