Without Concordia, the Rev. Christine Bellefeuille '82 and Ted Olson '82 wouldn't be where they are today, and they show their thanks in any way possible.

Since graduation, Chris has held a seat on the Board of Regents and Alumni Board and the two come back for Homecoming and class reunions. Their post-graduation experiences with Concordia have simply solidified their own commitment to the college.

Chris explains, "The more you can get students in front of alumni, the better. That connection opens up so many opportunities for both alumni and students."

As a 10-year member of the Board of Regents, she introduced many prospective students to Concordia and values the connection.

The couple values giving and the mission of Concordia College. Supporting the college financially is important to the couple as it embraces both.

Chris challenges her peers to step up and become donors. She says, "We hope our leadership will inspire others to give. Concordia made us feel like we mattered, and that our giving mattered."
