Hogen Adams is proud to share this article on member Vanya S. Hogen: Board Spotlight: Why Vanya Hogen Gives Back. Vanya serves on the advisory board for the Minnesota Urban Debate League, an Augsburg University program that supports competitive academic debate for high schools and middle schools. This article shares Vanya’s life-long connection with academic debate and what she’s doing to ensure that youth in our community have access to it, particularly while schools and students adjust to virtual programming. Vanya recently made a generous $1,000 gift to the MNUDL’s Virtual Supply Drive to help supply headsets for students. Please help us celebrate Vanya and her continued efforts to give back to our community. And please consider making a gift to this worthwhile cause: https://www.augsburg.edu/urbandebateleague/donate/.
