Christopher Reinke Endowment Award
This endowment was established by family and friends in memory of Chris Reinke, a natural resources technology (NRT) student, 1986-88. Chris was known as a free-spirited, independent young man who had a great love for the outdoors. It was because of his love for the woods and water that he chose the natural resources program at Lake Superior State University. His untimely death in 1988 left an indelible mark on Lake State students and to all who knew him. One of his friends, Cindy (Nocerini) Dingell, commented that Chris lived by the old phrase, “live each day like it was your first and every minute like it was your last.” He loved life and all the adventures that it could bring. The Christopher W. Reinke Endowment Award assists a natural resources technology student with a GPA between 2.0 - 3.0 who has a sincere interest and dedication in the NRT field. Selection is by the natural resources technology faculty for use during the sophomore year only.
