The Lake Superior State University community was shocked and saddened by the passing of both
and Dr. Lou Lukenda, just one week after Commencement. A
was held on campus May 11. The Dr. Thomas C. Pleger Memorial Fund has been established with the LSSU Foundation .
The university's governing Board of Trustees named Dr. David Roland Finley as acting president. The Trustees will meet May 26 to begin planning the search for a new president. We ask that your thoughts and prayers be with Dr. Pleger's wife Teresa and both their families in this difficult time.
