In The Moment … November 30, 2020 Show 950 Hour 2

As the oldest post-secondary school in South Dakota, Augustana University had an exceptionally rich history even before it was established in Sioux Falls in 1918.

Students at Augustana Academy experienced a type of schooling that was and still is rare in this part of the country. SDPB producer Brian Gevik joins me now for today's "Images of the Past."
