People with outstanding community-university engagement were recognized Thursday afternoon at UND. 8 people received awards at the Stone Soup Awards Program at the Gorecki Alumni Center.

The luncheon features soup served by Grand Forks Mayor Michael Brown and UND First Lady Marcia Kelley, music and guest speakers. This annual luncheon takes its name from the stone soup legend. In which hungry travelers start soup from a stone and feed a village when everyone contributes to it.

Center for Community Engagement, Lana Rakow said, "it's really a great time for the community and the University to come together and to applaud each other for the work that we do that's so important for the community."
