Professor Emeritus Arthur Duwe joined the LSSU faculty in 1968 as an Associate Professor of Biology-Chemistry. By the time, he was eligible for retirement in 1988, he chose part-time teaching over full-time retirement and continued teaching at Lake State until his death in 1991. One of his teaching associates described Professor Duwe as a man who had a heart of gold. He was a fascinating lecturer and a demanding teacher. Even though students may not have liked his tests, they loved his lectures. He placed particular emphasis on senior research projects to help the students get organized and prepare their projects to the best of their ability. This scholarship is awarded to a senior clinical laboratory science, biology, fisheries and wildlife, or environmental science student for his/her year of internship.
