"Rebecca Krause exemplifies our mission of providing quality post-secondary education...with the heart and compassion that makes a difference."

Rebecca Krause, who chairs the Massage Therapy Program at Anthem College—St. Louis Park and is a Specialist with the U.S. Army Reserve, has been awarded the Army Achievement Medal.
The medal recognizes meritorious service or achievement in a noncombat area. SPC Krause, who serves as a graphic illustrator assigned to a Psychological Operations Battalion, was cited for her exemplary performance, dedication and technical expertise during a two-week exercise held in earlier this year.
Using her graphic design skills, SPC Krause worked with Afghan nationals and interpreters to create a pamphlet and ensure cultural relevancy and effectiveness. Her work will help the effectiveness of operations in Afghanistan.
“Rebecca exemplifies our mission of providing quality post- secondary education by holding the students to standards of excellence every day,” says Campus President Elizabeth Beseke. “She does this with the heart and compassion that makes a difference in the lives of others. I am honored to have her on our team and defending our country.”
Krause has served a total of eight years with the Army Reserves, first as a Military Police Officer. She plans to continue her military service. She joined Anthem College three years ago as the Massage Therapy program chair. “It may seem unusual to go from Military Police to Computer Graphics to Massage Therapy,” she says, “but I love everything I’ve done and can always find a way to take past and present experiences and put them together to be the best me I can be now.”
