On Saturday, Graceland Esports will hit the road for Iowa City as they compete for the top prize in the GGLeagues fall Iowa season. Entering the post-season tournament as the second seed, Graceland now remains the favorite. Graceland has defeated teams from Kirkwood, Northwestern College, Waldorf, two University of Iowa teams, Northern Iowa and others on their way to the finals. With only one loss in fall competition, Graceland has a laser focus on the championship.
Alumnus Roger Powell recently returned to Graceland as the director of the writing center, completing a full circle that started when he began to find his way as an undergraduate student several years ago. Powell graduated from Graceland in 2012, but the direction he ultimately chose in his educational path had been a long time coming.
