Thank you to all that attended Concordia University Chicago’s Maroon & Gold event this past Saturday, September 24, 2022.

Janet was awarded the One Heart award for embodying Concordia-Chicago’s core values, excelling in their chosen vocation, her exceptional leadership abilities & expanding Concordia-Chicago’s impact through their association during her 10 years working with CLEF and the surrounding community.
