"Do not wait for extraordinary circumstances to do good: try to
use ordinary situations." --Jean Paul Richter

Marv Lansing, PhD., a 1954 UWRF graduate, was recognized as the 2012 Distinguished Alumnus during commencement ceremonies at UWRF Saturday. After Lansing received his bachelor's degree
in history from UWRF, he began a career as an educator and retired as superintendent of the Eau Claire Area School District in 1990, a position he held since 1969. Lansing recently established the Marvin and Margaret (Helmer) Lansing Scholarship through the
UW-River Falls Foundation to be awarded to a student from Dunn, Eau Claire, St. Croix, or Pierce counties who has financial need. Photo
