Lucas Dunn Endowed Memorial Scholarship
A rock-climbing trip that turned tragic for Cal State San Marcos student Lucas Dunn led Veronica Anover, CSUSM professor of French and Spanish, on a three-year long journey to keep his memory alive while supporting other students at the same time.
“I was so perplexed and so devastated by Lucas’ death that I had to make sense of that loss—somehow I had to,” said Anover. “I also had to make sense of Lucas not getting to go to France after all his hard work and his excitement. The only way I could make a little sense of his loss was to honor his memory with a scholarship.”
Lucas is described as a kind and warm person with a magnetic personality and sense of humor.
