Lou Ann Simpson, BN'66, LW'68, department chair and professor of business law at Drake, was keynote speaker at the November 9, 2012, luncheon that celebrated scholarships for 2012-13 academic year.
The Lou Ann Simpson Scholarship was created to honor Ms. Simpson by a former student. Simpson says the student inspired her, so each year she contributes a modest amount, which has allowed the fund to grow over time.
Laura McGuire, a business major with a concentration in business law, was this year’s recipient of the Lou Ann Simpson Scholarship and spoke at the luncheon. Ms. McGuire told how she grew up in a family with seven siblings and was able to attend Drake because of scholarship assistance and financial aid.
