Dorothy McLaughlin Memorial Scholarship

The Dorothy C. McLaughlin Memorial Scholarship was established by her children in recognition of the challenges experienced by non-traditional students returning to school at a later age. Dorothy McLaughlin was one such student who returned to Winona State University in 1961 at the age of 41 to complete her Bachelor degree in Elementary Education while still working and raising two children. She graduated with high honors in 1965 and subsequently completed her Master’s degree in Library Sciences in 1969. She then served as librarian for the Winona Junior High School from 1969 to 1985.

Scholarship contact is Scott McLaughlin (son of Dorothy).
