There was a lot of fanfare and celebration on the campus of Augustana today.
Augustana inaugurated Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, the new president of Augustana University.
The former congresswoman had an old, political colleague speak to the crowd about what she will bring as the school’s new leader.
“She will help new generations of young people from small towns across South Dakota and other places become leaders.” Sen. Thune said.
This is the first time in Augie’s 157 year history that a woman has served as president.
