This annual scholarship was established in 2014 by K.C. Dennison to honor her parents, George and Nancy McClure, and to recognize the excellent education afforded her son, Andrew George Dennison who graduated from LSSU in 2015. George and Nancy McClure, both graduates of Purdue University in engineering, believed in the importance of higher education, especially in the disciplines of science. In July 2019, Andrew passed away after a valiant battle with cancer. At the time of his passing, he was a PhD candidate student at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Andy will be remembered as an amazing young man with a gentle soul who possessed an incredible wit and love for Lake Superior State University and its Geology program. Andy’s LSSU college experience truly made a difference in his life, just as his limited time on this earth made such an incredible impact in the lives of the faculty, staff and students who knew him. Successful candidates must be a student majoring in the LSSU Geology program with at least 26 LSSU credits and a minimum 3.0 GPA.
