Please join the campus community in wishing Benjy Kent the best of luck as he retires after 21 years at Augsburg College. Benjy originally joined Augsburg as the men’s soccer coach. In his time here, Benjy has been the Director of Academic Advising, served as the interim Director of the CLASS Office, and most recently served as the Director of Academic Achievement. Benjy has also taught FYE courses and chaired the retention committee.
In each of these roles Benjy provided leadership and support to students and colleagues alike, with grace, generosity, and care. The breadth of roles Benjy has held at the College serves as a testament to his passion for the students of Augsburg College and embodies the definition of servant leadership.
Benjy leaves a legacy focused on serving students and his colleagues. He is a generous and caring colleague who will be truly missed. Please help us wish Benjy well in the next chapter of his life at a farewell gathering, Thursday, May 25, from 12:30 – 2:00pm, in OGC 100.
