Dr. Barb Schoenback Featured Speaker at Annual Poehler Lecture

Professor Emerita of Education Dr. Barb Schoenbeck is the featured speaker at the 2017 Poehler Lecture, March 7, 2017, at 7 p.m., in the Buetow Auditorium. The Poehler Lecture Series is an annual event designed to explore how students and faculty in the College of Arts & Letters, College of Education & Science, and College of Business & Technology have connected their Christian faith with their academic discipline. Speakers are selected based on excellence in their academic discipline and the maturity of their Christian faith. This event is FREE and open to the public.

Since her arrival at Concordia in 1978, Dr. Barbara Schoenbeck established a well-deserved reputation as an outstanding educator, a compassionate and influential mentor, a cherished colleague, and a humble, inspirational servant-leader passionately driven to promote positive, inclusive social change.

Dr. Schoenbeck served Concordia St. Paul with distinction for twenty-seven years before her retirement in 2005, but has continued playing an essential role in Concordia’s graduate program and as supervisor of practicum students and student teachers.

Her unparalleled dedication to the church, community, and to social justice, has been an inspiration to generations of students, staff, and faculty.
