Dean Allyn Lanz Scholarship
Dean Allyn Lanz, a 1990 graduate of Winona State University, was a strident advocate for free expression and social justice. He drew on his experience as a lawyer for cogent arguments, often on behalf of people who didn’t have a voice to speak up on their own behalf. His work included service on the city Human Rights Commission.
On the occasion of Dean Lanz’s death in 2007, the original scholarship was created for a student in mass communication for reporting on social justice and free expression issues for the CyberIndee. This scholarship is a fitting memorial to Dean Lanz’s bravery and courage to speak publicly regardless of whether his message would be popular.
