Excellence in Leadership Gala

Concordia's Ninth Annual Excellence in Leadership Gala

Concordia University Texas honored Elizabeth Christian (founder, president and chief executive officer of Elizabeth Christian Public Relations) and the Hon. Bruce Todd (former Travis County Precinct Two commissioner and a former mayor of Austin). It was held on Friday, September 11, 2015 at the new downtown JW Marriott, and included a cocktail reception and dinner presentation. The evening continued after the program featuring a bourbon and cocktail lounge.  Live music was performed by The Reunion Band. 

Concordia is committed to developing Christian leaders, and Bruce and Elizabeth have been an important part of our Concordia community. Not only have they been generous supporters of our mission, but they are excellent role models for all that is Concordia. They are wonderful examples of what it means to serve.

Approximately 80 percent of our students rely on financial support; a large part of which comes from events such as the EIL Gala. Concordia offers undergraduate, graduate, and Adult Degree Programs.
