In his 33 years at Winona State University, Carl Stange has done nothing but give back to students and the community. Carl has a deep appreciation for Theatre Arts and Music, a gratitude towards Veterans and the Military, a connection with the LGBT community and love for the WSU Ambassadors organization. Ensuring every student feels at home and safe was of the utmost importance to Carl during his years at WSU. It is with this in mind we developed The Carl Stange Endowed Scholarship. This scholarship will be able to continue Carls legacy on WSUs campus by giving back to students and making Winona State a more inclusive community.
