Horn Scholarship Award
Named for Prof. Lyle Horn who served on our faculty from 1960 until his untimely death in 1989. He was the beloved champion of many undergraduates here at UW-Madison, devoted to their welfare and their learning. Upon his death, a number of his former students established a permanent endowment for support of promising undergraduates interested in meteorology. That endowment supports this award.
Among the many testimonials to Prof. Horn that attempt to describe his influence on young people, we have the following from one Bill Steffen, who graduated here in 1977 and who now lives in Grand Rapids, MI. Mr. Steffen writes:
"The best that can be said about someone is that he or she left the world a better place. That can certainly be said about Dr. Lyle Horn."
