Gustavus Adolphus College has named Lindsey Reimnitz, daughter of Sam and Nancy Reimnitz of Armour, S.D., as the recipient of the Ronald S. and Rolf S. Christenson Scholarship in Political Science. The scholarship is awarded to a junior political science major judged exemplary in the excellence, depth, and imagination of his or her academic performance in political science and who has demonstrated interest in public service.

The scholarship was established by Ronald Christenson, who founded the political science department at Gustavus, and his wife, Kathryn, and now honors the memories of Ron and the couple’s late son, Rolf, a U.S. Army airborne ranger instructor and honor guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery. Ron taught in the department from 1969 to 1998 and won the College’s Edgar Carlson Award for Distinguished Teaching in 1993.
