New Luther College President Dr. Jenifer K. Ward
#5: The inauguration of Jenifer K. Ward as Luther College's 11th President came at an important time for the college. The school, which had surpassed 2,500 students earlier in the decade, sank below 2,000 students as classes began in the fall. Ward's hiring got good marks from many people in the community and she also stressed that "we are your college and you are our town." Ceremonies were held in October (http://www.decorahnews.com/archived-stories/2019/11/23731.html
) to make official Ward's appointment, which had been made in March.
