Josie Middleton is from Morinville, Alberta and is in her first year with the Vikings. She is enrolled in a BSc program, majoring in Environmental Sciences and one day hopes to work in conservation. Josie chose to come to Augustana because of the welcoming community, its location, and the opportunities it provides.
She played basketball, curling, and rugby in high school. She was an honours student and a 4H member for 10 years. She is also a new executive for the Augustana Outdoors club.
When Josie is not on the ski trails you can find her hanging out with friends, rock climbing, or in the library. Her favorite book is A Thousand Splendid Suns, her favorite movie is It’s A Wonderful Life and her favorite food is Mexican food.
One of her favorite inspirational quotes is: “Be brave enough to be bad at something new” -Jon Acuff
