Jerry Jay Cranford, who is finishing up his second year of teaching acting and musical theater at Kansas State University, will join Augustana later this year to help build a musical theater degree program.
"They already have a good idea. They think I'm the missing link in the puzzle to get it all started," Cranford said earlier this week. "They have a lot of big things coming up very quickly. It's going to be a very good time at Augustana."
