The Iowa Senate approved resolution No. 6 on March 22, "honoring and congratulating John D. Lawrence for his years of dedicated service to Iowa State University of Science and Technology, the State of Iowa and all Iowans."
Congratulating Lawrence are (right) Sen. Jeff Edler, District 26 in central Iowa, and (left) the resolution's sponsor, Sen. Tom Shipley, District 9 in southwest Iowa, where Lawrence grew up. The two senators introduced Lawrence and read the resolution into the daily record.
Lawrence, a two-time alumnus and vice president for ISU Extension and Outreach, wraps up nearly 32 years of leadership and service to the university this spring.
